NetBSD Newbie

Quick question for you guys.
I'm installing NetBSD via FTP on a old 100MHz w/ 16 RAM (nice machine...).

So anywho, I've grown quite accustomed to using SSH and Bash, how would I be able to to change the shell to bash?

Install the bash package, and then run chsh. See the man page for more details.
