Hi all, I just installed NetBSD/Mac68k on my old Macintosh IIcx, and 
while I'm familiar with Unix operating systems, I just have a few 

I tried to compile a simple HelloWorld program, (I'm still learning 
C/C++, so this is a real easy one for me to write and compile).  I guess 
everything compiled alright, I got an a.out file.  But, when I try to run 
the program to see if it worked I get a message that says:
a.out: Command not found.
I checked the permissions on the file, and everything seems alright, but 
I just can't run the program.  (Oh, I compiled it by using the command 
"g++ helloworld.C").

Also, how do I give another user root or super user (are they the same 
thing) access?  Do I just make the UID 0 (zero)?

Thanks in advance for you help.
