I was hoping that I could use slip (like I have done many times before
with 1.4.x and 1.5.x) to install 1.6.1_RC2. (I modified sysinstall to not
ignore "sl".)

I saw several months ago that I could not do slip from 1.5.x to a 1.6 box.
Now, I see that 1.6 to 1.6 doesn't work either.

Can someone look at NetBSD Problem Report #18799?

p.s. Hmmm... my next option to install NetBSD is to boot with some
other OS rescue disk that supports my NIC or slip and then make a
partition, and then transfer the sets to it. But then again I do need
network access for later stuff :(

Time to find a different pcmcia card ...
