I am having a plethora of install problems on two different machines.  The
first is a CTX laptop.  The problem being that I can't get the network to
work properly.  I assume this is a PCMCIA issue, like the documentation
touches on, but there is no adequate resolution to the problem in those
documents.  I get through the disk install fine, but I can't get the network
setup to complete.  I have a link light from the card, but the ping fails,
even though it should work.

The next problem is on a PI 233 which has had FreeBSD, OpenBSD, RedHat,
Mandrake and others on it.  When I click install NetBSD on hard drive from
the menu I get, "No NetBSD hard drives found."  What gives.

I want to try out NetBSD, but am becoming increasingly frustrated which
perhaps accounts for the lack of tangible information in this letter.
