: Could someone please give me a few pointers or pointers to a document
: telling how to bootstrap NetBSD onto an hp300 machine?  In particular,
: I'd like to know if it requires that hp-ux is already running on the
: machine.  FWIW, the machine is a 425 (from the readmes, it looks like
: that machine is supported?).

If you can wait a short while; we're cutting a release soon and I plan to
have an hp300 release done at that time. There will be a root-image and
tarballs available.  The 425's *are* supported so you have little to worry
about there.

You don't necessarily need hpux installed but you'll need access to some 
machine that has similarly-endianed scsi and  a 'dd' command.                           |  NovAtel Commnications Ltd.                               | <nothing I say matters anyway>
