I have NetBSD 1.5 running happily on my 660AV in San Diego. None of
the the 1.5.1 beta's would work. I just got 1.5.1 up and running on a
Centris 650 here in Oak Ridge. As someone suggested a few weeks ago,
there may be a problem with the AV mac versions. I won't be back to
San Diego to try the 660AV for a couple of months.
