NetBSD-1.4.1 and latest snapshot
I'm novice user of NetBSD. I installed NetBSD to NOTE-PC, but I
need to change pcic_isa_intr_alloc_mask at boot up time.

To set pcic_isa_intr_alloc_mask, I need to use ``write'' command.
db> write pcic_isa_intr_alloc_mask 0x0808
But at first time I used ``set'' command....,
db> set pcic_isa_intr_alloc_mask 0x0808
Because I don't know DDB command-set, and I only have 2-floppy
image and INSTALL.txt, I don't have NetBSD installed machine. In
INSTALL.txt, it was written: ``set pcic_isa_intr_alloc_mask''. So I
use ``set'' command, instead of ``write''.
I think this description to be a difficult and confused in the
beginner. I hope to add the example concerning DDB.
