    9: NetBSD/i386 is the port of NetBSD to the IBM PCs and PC clones with i386-family processors. It runs on ISA (AT-bus), EISA, PCI, VL-bus and MCA systems, with or without math coprocessors.
   10: 
   11: NetBSD/i386 was the original port of NetBSD, and was initially released as [NetBSD 0.8](http://www.netbsd.org/releases/formal-0.8/) in 1993.

   17: The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/i386 system requires 4M of RAM and about 40M of disk space.
   18: 
   19: For a full installation (including source and X11), at least 8M of RAM and 200M of disk space are recommended.
   20: 
   21: Any i486 or better CPU should work - genuine Intel or a compatible such as Cyrix, AMD, or NexGen.
   22:

   31:  * Machine-independent drivers for SCSI and ATAPI devices.
   32:  * Machine-independent drivers for USB devices
   33:  * Machine-independent drivers for MII devices (IEEE 802.3 Media Independent Interface, typically used for physical media interfaces for FastEthernet controllers)
   34:  * Machine-independent drivers for MCA devices
   35:  * Standard PC floppy controllers (fdc) and drives (fd)
   36:  * Adaptec 284x VLbus SCSI host adapters (ahc)
