I don't know about NetBSD, but I kind of doubt it. Its a Maybe via Apples
free LocalTalk Bridge software. The Shiva/Kinetics FastPath and some of the
Farallon boxes yes. My NetBSD router IIci is pure ethernet, and one of my
other normal macs does the LocalTalk Bridge, but I only use it for printers
right now. IP over localtalk is on my future agenda though.
