i just threw all my confs in when i got it working in philly..might need a
hosts reference to keep nfs happy..exports should be such that nfs can
might need to check perms..i believe you can use same box for i386 andd
ppc..i used to with the nubus..
might want to put that encapsulated stuff in a specific host in dhcpd.conf
but i am pretty sure i386 ignores it...best of luck..and lemme know how it
comes out..you might need to try a couple different video card designations
in lts.conf..bill-xc says some may need glx mopdule loaded...chuck
