I was concerned that I needed a larger CF card... and had to tinker with
installing NetBSD with only a CF card for the install and a wireless
PCMCIA card.  Your image solved the problem.

Logged in fine, works beautifully... until it reboots and goes back into
Windows CE!

So I have more work to do... thanks so much Jun.  Appreciated.
