I'm attempting to install NetBSD 1.1 on my A3000 with 4M of fast
memory. I've had NetBSD 1.0 running on it earlier but decided to make
a fresh start and change some partition sizes when upgrading to 1.1.

I'm stuck trying to boot using the miniroot inst-11.fs. I've copied it
to my swap partition and started NetBSD with loadbsd -b netbsd.
Everything looks fine until it asks:

Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:

I'm looking for some help in getting past this problem.
