about="""
NetBSD/i386 is the port of NetBSD to generic machines ("PC clones") with 32-bit x86-family processors. It runs on PCI-Express, PCI, and CardBus systems, as well as older hardware with PCMCIA, VL-bus, EISA, MCA, and ISA (AT-bus) interfaces, with or without math coprocessors.

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.

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

"""
supported_hardware="""
The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/i386 system requires 4M of RAM and about 40M of disk space.

For a full installation (including source and X11), at least 8M of RAM and 200M of disk space are recommended.

Any i486 or better CPU should work - genuine Intel or a compatible such as Cyrix, AMD, or NexGen.

Devices (driver names in parenthesis) supported by NetBSD/i386 include:

 * Machine-independent drivers for ISA devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for PCI devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for EISA devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for PCMCIA devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for Cardbus devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for ATA devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for SCSI and ATAPI devices.
 * Machine-independent drivers for USB devices
 * Machine-independent drivers for MII devices (IEEE 802.3 Media Independent Interface, typically used for physical media interfaces for FastEthernet controllers)
 * Machine-independent drivers for MCA devices
 * Standard PC floppy controllers (fdc) and drives (fd)
 * Adaptec 284x VLbus SCSI host adapters (ahc)
 * NCR 53C80 port-mapped and memory-mapped SCSI host adapters (nca)
 * The PC speaker (pcppi and sysbeep)
 * Logitech bus mouse (lms)
 * Microsoft InPort mouse (mms)
 * PS/2 mouse (pms)
 * Joysticks on game ports (joy)
 * MDA, CGA, VGA, SVGA and HGC Display Adapters (pccons or wscons).
     *  not all of the display adapters supported by NetBSD/i386 will work with X. See the XFree86 FAQ for more information.
