Heh, on my notebook I was able to find traces of original 3.x install:
sobomax at notebook$ LANG=C ls -l /var/ | grep 199
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Aug 16 1999 account/
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 512 Aug 16 1999 at/
drwxr-x--- 3 root wheel 512 Aug 16 1999 cron/
drwxr-xr-x 2 daemon wheel 512 Aug 16 1999 msgs/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Aug 16 1999 preserve/
drwxrwxr-x 2 root daemon 512 Aug 16 1999 rwho/
I have lost count of how many notebooks I have changed since that time.
