OK I've followed the instruction:
downloaded http://www.l8s.co.uk/netbsd/boot, build a new boot floppy with
the new "boot" code but with the same result: the pc reboots after
display the first booting message.
To make sure the new floppy is correct, I've tried on a second pc (and on
it works fine, as with the original install floppy).
