Thanks to everyone who responded on this message.  I've ordered my
Jornada 728, a 1G IBM Microdrive, some duct tape to hold the
MicroDrive in place, and an Intersil Prism 3-chip-driven wireless
card.  Making all this work should give me a good three months of
columns, and the response from those will tell me if I should write a
NetBSD book.  :-)

Thanks again!
