	The answer may belong in the manpages, but it does not necessarily
	need to be in the same depth as in the online FAQs. This is also
	more of a 'netbsd-docs' question than 'www'. Right now its
	probably more inportant to make the information available - and
	then to take a pass through merging into the shipped docs and
	netbsd guide.
