	Well, I finally got my 1GB drive.  All it took was to change 
suppliers and I had the drive in less than a week.  Typical... :p

	Where was I?  Oh, yes.  So I now have a 1GB SCSI2 drive attached
to the 3/50 replacing the CDC 96141-155.  Currently, it takes quite a lot
of time to access the drive; for some reason it reminds me of a C64. 
Would enabling the DMA "mode" speed up this drive so that I will be able
to load X in my lifetime? 

	In an unrelated topic, how do you rebuild the kernel in NetBSD?  
In ultrix we had this /usr/sys directory where the kernel config file 
would be hidden.  Would NetBSD have something similar?
