Hi there,
                I have installed netbsd on my workpad z50 using a 128M CF for 
the base system and NFS mounting the remainder.  This works reasonably well 
with two issues.

1.  I get periodic messages of the form:- 
       where the numbers change with each message.

I think this is telling me that the kernel I have (netbsd-GENERIC) is not 
using the correct driver for the trackpoint.  Can anyone shed light on this?

2.  I wish to use a Cisco Aironet 350 wireless card.  This is detetced OK and 
when I set the SSID correctly I can see it trying to associate with my base 
station.  However I need to turn on WEP using the long key.  When I try to 
give it the long key using:-
     ifconfig an0 nwkey <key> 
       where key is 0x<26 hex digits>
I get messages about invalid key.  

 Does ifconfig handle the long keys?
 Does the aironet driver handle long keys?
