Ohhhh, I don't know about that. For the longest time now the only way to
run NetBSD on the VAXstation 3100 series of systems has been by netbooting
them. Anyone who wanted to run NetBSD+pppd on those systems would have to
do it with a diskless setup. Yes, the situation is not the most common,
but I don't think it should be disregarded entirely.
