That tends to happen with a complete overhaul of the VM system :-)  The
most recent precompiled kernel, 1.3F #456, uses the new NetBSD UVM virtual
memory system instead of the previous Mach virtual memory system. If you
fall back to the 1.3E #445 from June 5th, you shouldn't see any problems.
I also found that kernel to work quite well on netbooted VS2000's.

The fix for the new UVM kernels is to recompile the non-working utilities. 
Actually, it might not be a bad idea to start work on recompiling
everything and coming up with a new interim distribution... but that can
take a lot of work, or at least a lot of time :-)
