We have a suitable work-arround now:
The "MONOLITHIC" kernel configuration is now built by default for
NetBSD/i386 and included in release snapshots (in the file
"i386/binary/kernel/netbsd-MONOLITHIC.gz"). This kernel should
provide an easy way to test NetBSD-current kernels on an existing
NetBSD 5.0 installation.

        Kind regards
