I don't mean to sound like a traitor to NetBSD (I have two NetBSD/mac68k boxes
and one NetBSD/i386 box), but in your case I would have to recommend trying
FreeBSD. I have a ThinkPad and I just found the PCMCIA support to be better
under FreeBSD than NetBSD.
*You may be able to find some books on FreeBSD that also include a CD-ROM. You
can also order FreeBSD CD-ROMs from www.cdrom.com
