Use the pilot-link package in pkgsrc/comms/pilot-link - there's a
program called pi-getrom which should do what you want.

I haven't tried the pkgsrc xcopilot, but I've got an older version
(0.6.4) working fine on NetBSD/i386 1.3.3 with PalmOS1, PalmOS2 and
PalmOS3 ROMs (I haven't got the debug ROMs from 3com).  I'll try the
pkgsrc version on my i386 1.3I machine at work tomorrow.
