On the other hand, on my softkicked A3000 NetBSD reboot doesn't
complete either, as Michael van Elst said was the case for softkicked
A3000s.  Shortly after a NetBSD reboot the A3000 halts with a yellow
(I think) screen.  I then have to keyboard reset it to get to the
Kickstart selection menu, but from there it is OK.  It's a minor
problem as I don't have to reboot often (NetBSD 1.1 is stable enough,
apparently :-)).

I do have a general problem with my softkick setup currently, though,
in that Kickstart isn't loaded automatically from disk; it always
comes up in the Kickstart selection bootmenu.  This problem appeared
when I changed the SCSI IDs of my harddisks.  Originally the disk with
the Kickstart image was at SCSI ID 6, but now it is at SCSI ID 0.  I
don't know if this problem has anything to do with the NetBSD boot
problem, though.
