I am new to netbsd but have been using UNIX for a long time.

I am hoping netbsd will do what nobody else can.

I need complete headless support for intel hardware.

A pure text install that features the capability to do a headless install seems

The install could run (documented) gettys on (all?) the serial ports
detected allowing an admin to install the system using a dumb terminal.

Am I insane or can this be done?  

I realize many non intel platforms (SUN) can do this and that the realweasel
card for intel will do what I want also.  

Thank you
