missed it, it is NetBSD 1.4.2 from boot1.fs on i386.
During install I follow the install destructions downloaded from ftp.netbsd.org.
That is, when it is time to configure the network - I want to install from a machine whose address
is 192.168.0.5 - I provide only the gateway IP address and 'my' IP address of 192.168.0.8. The NetBSD installer attempts to execute
/sbin/ping -v -c 5 -w 5 -o -n 192.168.0.5. AT THAT MOMENT, 192.168.0.5 can successfully ping
192.168.0.8. When I drop to /bin/sh, executing the EXACT ping command graven herein for your
reading pleasure, it succeeds on the first try. ifconfig ex0 reports reasonable-looking values.
Netmask is set as it should be, 0xffffff00.
The network card is a 3com 3c905, and it is detected right. I don't see any underrun information
as OpenBSD provides.
Of course, I cannot get the install packages from ftp if the installer doesn't allow me to
proceed. Therefore, to use my gateway I have to take the target HDD out and put the old
one back in....
Just try to configure the network. Fails every time from the installer, succeeds
every time from /bin/sh.
