I've already promised the Tokyo Linux Users Group the proceeds from this 
stuff, but TLUG supports NetBSD too (the TLUG webserver runs NetBSD) so 
you guys shouldn't feel bad about donating to TLUG.

The time has come for me to part with some of my collection of computer 
gear.  And a whole lot of it can run NetBSD.  Everything is at my home in 
central Tokyo.

All items will be given to whoever makes the best offer[1], all proceeds
will be donated to TLUG.

So, here's what I've got:

Macintosh IIcx computer (16MHz 68030 with 68882 FPU)
2GB SCSI hard drive
NuBus ethernet card (10base2, 10baseT)
Runs OpenBSD, NetBSD, or you can run MacOS system 7

Macintosh IIci computer (25MHz 68030 with 68882 FPU)
Level 2 cache card installed
4GB SCSI hard drive
NuBus ethernet card (10base2, 10baseT)
  ... may be the best machine Apple has ever produced."
  -- MacUser, November 1989
Runs OpenBSD, NetBSD, or you can run MacOS system 7

Macintosh Powerbook 540c (33MHz 68040LC)
320MB SCSI hard drive, also 500MB SCSI hard drive which is not installed
640x480 color screen
built in ethernet
includes external SCSI cables
battery no longer holds a charge, runs fine when plugged in
Runs NetBSD (softfloat build) or you can run MacOS 7 or 8

I also have Motorola's reference docs for the 68k chip, three books:

M68000 Family Programmer's Reference Manual (Includes CPU32 Instructions)
(M68000PM/AD Rev.1)
This is the complete guide to 68k machine code and assembly language,
describes every machine instruction, addressing modes, chip
architecture, etc.

MC68030 User's Manual Third Edition
(MC68030UM/AD Rev.2)

M68040 User's Manual
(M68040UM/AD Rev.1)

These are very technical books, intended for hardware system designers
and assembly language programmers.  If you wanted to improve NetBSD,
OpenBSD, or Linux kernel support for the above machines, these are just
the books you need.

I'm happy to include these books along with any of the above computers,
but I only have one set of books.

Power Macintosh 7300/180 (180MHz PPC 604e)
4GB SCSI hard drive
100 Mbit ethernet adapter

20GB Seagage Barracuda ATA II ST320420A Ultra ATA disk

Several external SCSI disk enclosures with 4GB and 2GB disks inside.
These work well with the Macintosh machines, though you could use them
with the Deskpros as well.

I also have all kinds of serial, SCSI and other cables for the above
machines, and one black IBM PC keyboard.
