Yah, and you'd also need a populated dev/ directory.

That was what I wanted to avoid, BTW; partly since the installation
docs mentioned that the RAMDISK kernel should be the only required
thing, so I stuck with that, and partly because I'm lazy. ;-)

Anyway, I may look into why the 1.5 RAMDISK is damaged; I'll over
the next few days (weeks? -- it sure is no speed demon ;-) be
building my own distribution based on the current netbsd-1-5 branch
sources, so that I can find out whether it's a simple build error or
whether something more sinister is going on with the RAMDISK kernel.
