OK, let me specify this a bit better:
I would like to be able put together a server running NetBSD 1386 for
around $5,000-$7,000. This doesn't need to be able to have fancy graphics,
but it have good i/o throughput, and good computational abilities (heavy
CGI & database useage).
I would also like the machine to be able to bootstrap itself from the
standard boot disks.
