Yea, I know.
..I'm still in the process of learning to understand what happens from step
to step and what data structures there are involved. In the moment the
physical/virtual adress mapping makes problems but I think I can
find out how to do things.
I'll ask you again If I think that it helps, ok?

Yes, that's the point. I'm familar with a BSD Derivate, FreeeBSD, this
helps a lot. But I can't even read a NetBSD Manual..think I have to install
a native System on my VS4000/90 or install a "cross manual system"..

:-) Yes, it's OT, but this was the only practicable way to inform you.
Besides of this, it was only the copy from the group reply that was
blocked, there is nothing lost but I'll save your address just in case...
We don't even need to discuss this, since I can't change anything from the
opinions from politicans and the German NIC at all.
The domain there is older as the practice to hide the admin contact and
again, I'm not happy with this, even when I know where I can get the info.
