i also would advise you to check out the netbsd.org page on ports; it
has links and other info you might consider doing and/or using. e.g.,
updating your OF, there's an OF patch (1.0.5), and some other utils.
I don't know if your model of box should have the OF upgrade, but you
can check it out on the page below.
