This box is netbooting NetBSD using the onboard interface, the quickest
test I came up with was to ping the other interface from another box on
the LAN.

That was at the top:

tadpole# disklabel -i /dev/wd0
partition> P
3 partitions:
#        size    offset     fstype [fsize bsize cpg/sgs]
 c:    250368         0     unused      0     0        # (Cyl.      0 -    977)
partition> Q

tadpole# mount -t msdos /dev/wd0c /mnt
mount_msdos: /dev/wd0c on /mnt: Operation not supported by device

But I just stuck that same card in my WinXP laptop, and the card was
formatted fat32 for my GBA MoviePlayer.  Feh, trying again with a
regular FAT FS.


And the card that did mount under Solaris does not mount under NetBSD.
Same results under disklabel -i though.

A friend of mine has an 802.11b card that is supported under NetBSD,
he's been out of town all week, I'll see if I borrow it and give it a
shot too.
