Hmmm. IIRC you really need a bus adaptor to be able to connect a TC
card, right? I've got some framebuffer TC cards around, I'd offer one.
Don't know about NetBSD, but a simple Linux driver exist (so it should
be easy to rip off needed constants).

By the way, are you possibly available by IRC or via email to answer
some toolchain (TC :-) related questions around Sep. 22nd to 26th? My
plan is to first make Linux run on the /90, then continue with toolchain
hacking. Guess I'd make good use of your expertise (^8
