Could you give me a starting point? I'm mainly messing with this from work,
on machines at home. Do I need to go -current, is -3_0 good enough?



PS: I will be more than happy to test them. Now that my fileserver is no

kernel bugs out. If you'd like access to the machine (serial console, most
likely, for what it's worth on i386) it could be arranged.
