someone booted the port a while ago on the 240 for me.
the port didn't really work back then but it sounded like the primary
problem was that the graphics board isn't supported yet. I'll try to
dig up the mail.

| A new binary snapshot is coming out soon (boy do I hate saying that!).
| However, I should warn you that as far as I know, nobody's currently
| running NetBSD on the 5000/240, so there's no guarantee that it's
| really working.
| Anyway, once the snapshot comes out, we will try to get you up and
| running as expeditiously as possible. There are some people in the
| Bay Area who have expressed interest in getting the 5000/240 port
| working, so it should be possible to make it happen.
