It was the CD.

Verified fine, but for whatever reason was not read properly when

Another burn worked.

I *HATE* burned optical media.

Any special reason why?

I finished an install of NetBSD 3.1, which went great (so far).

If I can get all of my news/mail/gateway software built and running on
it, it will replace a Sun SS5 doing that duty now.

Do I really need to upgrade the OBP?
