	well i had a tga card... but i took it out because it isn't
	is the experimental snapshot stable? would i be better off waiting for
the next release ?
	i am a newbie to netbsd and i apologise for annoying people with
questions. this probably doesn't mean much to some people but i have
had  3 years experience with linux. recently my x86(pent166) hasn't been
acting too good so i decided it's about time to run some 'REAL'
hardware, like my DEC alpha station (it may not be "real" to some ppl,
but, hey, i like it). alpha linux was less than desirable, so i looked
around... NetBSD looked like a good choice. hmm, as long as i'm
rambling, what's a good terminal emulation to use on console? and is
there a way to do the up arrow to go through history feature?
