A friend of mine is trying to do a new install of NetBSD v1.0 on his A2000
and has run into some problems.  He has the PP&S 68040 acelerator on his
system which appears to be source of the problems.

The following  two paragraphs are excerpts of his problem as he has sent
them to me.  I haven't a clue at this point, but if anyone else can help
it sure would be appreciated.


I have ixemul.libary V39.45, generic kernel V1.0, and LoadBsd V2.10. I did use
RAWWRITE to write the inst-10.fs image onto a floppy.

When in the installation process it asks for root device and I enter fd0, the
process halts with a "panic - can't boot root" message, or something akin to
that, and leaves me with a "DB>" prompt.
