 Hi...I don't know are there many people still on this list, but..

 I have an old Sun3/50 (is there such a thing as a new one), and want to
stick an OS on it. NetBSD looks good, but i've no idea how to go about
it...are there installation instructions off ?

 Also, seeing as the machine has no CD/floppy, can it be installed from a
another machine (Hurd allows an untarring of a tarfile from a linux box),
or will I have to download everything,and make a bootable CD, and then
scavenge a SCSI CD ?
