	NetBSD 3.99.5 (GENERIC.ABLE) #0: Wed Jun  8 01:24:59 BST 2005
Architecture: arm
Machine: cats
	distribution media (including iso images built with
		cd src/etc; make iso-image
	should include bootable kernels for folks using ABLE firmware.
	The sysinst program should include both kernels as selectable
	alternatives and a cdrom should have something like
	as an alternative image in the root directory.

	Try to boot a cats kernel installation image on a machine with
	ABLE firmware.

	The kernel variants are already available, so it's just
	a matter of tweaking the build system to build the right images
	and put then into the configuration matrix.
