I run NetBSD on my NEC Versa 6050MX.  It runs very well.  There are
some deficiencies in the PCMCIA framework, namely it currently has
no way to determine the range of i/o addresses and mask of IRQs that
will work properly.  However, the software can work around this with
some user intervention, and we have some ideas about how to fix this

Anyhow, I'm quite happy with NetBSD on my laptop.
