2001-02-12: Some recent changes to NetBSD/bebox
Allen Briggs has added the ex driver (3Com 3c90x[BC]) to NetBSD/bebox, and used it for an NFS-based boot. This requires configuring the PCI bus at boot time, which requires the PCI_NETBSD_CONFIGURE option to exist in your kernel configuration file.

Also, in addition to the tested 3Com card, all PCI devices supported under NetBSD/macppc should now work. Please tell the folks at the port-bebox if you have any problems.

SCSI support is under development.
