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.
