Actually, with the SH3 in there I really have toyed with borrowing a friend's
DC and burning the CD image just to see how fast it goes. Some clever wag on
the NetBSD/dreamcast list suggested we should just tell everyone the CD has
fifty new games on it! (You know, hack, canfield, trek ... ;-)

I hadn't even thought of using NFS or likeminded ideas on it. Cool, that's
definitely a thought. I didn't know the DC had an ethernet adaptor. This
is sounding like a cooler and cooler idea all the time! :-)

Besides, what's wrong with a serial console? I have a Wyse 30 here that
needs good use ;-)
