I plan to (slowly) work on porting various bits of the BSD networking
release code to linux.

I have a running version of their make, but need to apply a patch I just
saw on the net today, and I'll upload it somewhere soon (watch for
details).

Perhaps the device drivers there for the i386 will be useful?
They include:
	com port(s), floppy,
	NE2000 Ethernet, WD8003E, WD8003EBT, WD8003S, WD8003SBT, WD8013EBT
	console & keyboard
	various disk & tapes

also might pick up VFS, bsd ffs (may be incomplete?)

To the person that said he would work on the Berkeley network stuff, please
drop me an email message as I would like to help you out.

Well, I may have *sounded* like I was going to tackle the BSD networking
stuff, but what I really intended to mean was that I'm tackling code in
the BSD "networking" release 2 (which includes a whole heap of code for
utilities and libraries).  Anybody who wants to deal with the networking
code itself (sockets, tcp, etc) is welcome to look at that; for the
moment I'm more interested in getting various utilities and libraries
from BSD working (they seem to have a rather large C library; maybe even
complete!).
