There's touch panel control support on the WorkPad?  That confused me...

Also why is $TERM set to wsvt25?  vt220 seems work for me better for the
screen size.

I have three cards donated by other NYC*BUG people.

* rtw (on OpenBSD) Realtek 8180 RTL8180F which is a Linksys 802.11b card

* another Realtek 8185 which uses re(4) I think.  It's from Encore

* then the closest to wokring is the wi(4) from Microsoft MN-520 which I
think requires firmware.  ISL3873 PRISM2.5

Huge thanks if you could add any of those drivers in... it saves me from
having to cross-compile on some other ancient hardware.

Thank you for making this easy without having to cross-compile.

Not quite sure how I'm going to use this.. but I'm positive I wont build
perl from source like Sevan :)

Any ideas on using resize_ffs(8) besides doing from another NetBSD box?
