My memory could just be failing, but I believe that USL is giving
the FreeBSD folks a hard time about Net/2, so I wouldn't expect
it to be easily available for Linux.
But as I said my memory is failing.

The NET/2 BSD code came out pretty much unscathed by the final settlement,
much more significant were a few odd bits of the UFS code. You can pick
BSD NET/2 up from many archive sites (the original not the Linux stuff).
Linux uses a lot of the user utilities from the BSD NET/2 release but the
standard set uses no kernel code from it.

UCB's statement about the legal settlement asked people to use the 4.4BSD
lite stuff instead.. I've not seen this yet, and since the *BSD people
aren't yet using it I assume its pending release still.
