Works fine a PPro200 (82371SB) but loses on my laptop (ISA/VLbus IDE;
fails to mount root) and under NetBSD/alpha on a PC164SX (panic when 
mounting root trying to load a map that has never been created).
[Also has compilation problems under NetBSD/alpha.]

Given the above it makes me quite nervous about the stability of these
