    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.
   12: 
   13: Frank van der Linden is the current port maintainer of NetBSD/i386.

   17: The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/i386 system requires 4M of RAM and about
   18: 40M of disk space. For a full installation (including source and X11), at least
   19: 8M of RAM and 200M of disk space are recommended.
   20: Any i486 or better CPU should work - genuine Intel or a compatible such as
   21: Cyrix, AMD, or NexGen.
   22: Devices (driver names in parenthesis) supported by NetBSD/i386 include:
   23: * Machine-independent drivers for ISA devices
   24: * Machine-independent drivers for PCI devices
   25: * Machine-independent drivers for EISA devices
   26: * Machine-independent drivers for PCMCIA devices
   27: * Machine-independent drivers for Cardbus devices
   28: * Machine-independent drivers for ATA devices
   29: * Machine-independent drivers for SCSI and ATAPI devices.
   30: * Machine-independent drivers for USB devices
   31: * Machine-independent drivers for MII devices (IEEE 802.3 Media Independent
   32:   Interface, typically used for physical media interfaces for FastEthernet
   33:   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)
   37: * NCR 53C80 port-mapped and memory-mapped SCSI host adapters (nca)

   39: * Logitech bus mouse (lms)
   40: * Microsoft InPort mouse (mms)
   41: * PS/2 mouse (pms)
   42: * Joysticks on game ports (joy)
   43: * MDA, CGA, VGA, SVGA and HGC Display Adapters (pccons or wscons). Note:
   44:   not all of the display adapters supported by NetBSD/i386 will work with
   45:   X. See the XFree86 FAQ for more information.
