From netbsd-user, Greg oster says:

Those of you following Source-Changes may have noticed that
RAIDframe is now enabled by default in GENERIC on a number
of architectures.  Hopefully it will soon be enabled in the
INSTALL kernels as well :)

RAIDframe currently weighs in at 230K on i386 (with debugging
turned off). Functionality includes RAID 0, 1, 4, and 5 with
all the various queues, autoconfig, and other goodies.

So it would appear that using a netbsd-current boot floppy, I
set up raidframe during the install. Hmmm, anyway, I'll have a
look more at the mail archives. 

Thanks for your help,
