        Then NetBSD should work fine with the DQ686 (though I read it
as D0686 on my board) and a Maxtor XT-8380E in my MV II? Mine
originally had two of the 8380E's installed in it's BA23, but I
removed one of them and have it stuck away as a spare. It might be
interesting to try NetBSD loaded onto the 2nd one, if it could be
netbooted to do the install.
