I'm having similar problems.  I am installing NetBSD for the first time
on my Amiga 2000/030.  I have gotten as far as partitioning my disk and
creating a NetBDS boot floppy.  But when I type:

   loadbsd -b netbsd

it switches over to the NetBSD screen, lists about half-a-screen of system
information, and then stops.  No prompt or anything.  No way to then boot
to the NetBSD boot floppy.

The netbsd file I was using was the standard distribution file that is
available on the standard ftp sites.  When loadbsd is running it says
A1200.  I suppose this is not a problem even though I have an A2000.

Could someone provide a little more info on how to do this.  I'm a
first-time installer.
