I am about to buy a pentium machine for running NetBSD (and NetBSD alone).
I still have a few Intel Outside stickers left, so I'd like to get a non-
Intel CPU. ;-)

How good are the Cyrix and AMD CPU's?  Are there any problems running NetBSD
on them?  Any patches required?  How about the speed?  Heat problems?  The
non-Intel versions seem to be much cheaper, so they're very interesting to

Any information greatly appreciated (maybe this info could be included on
a WWW page somewhere.. I'm sure many people would like to know).
