nbinstallboot -e -oconsole=3Dcom0 -ospeed=3D9600 -m i386 ./pxeboot_ia32.bin
nbinstallboot: Invalid magic in stage1 boostrap
nbinstallboot: Edit bootstrap operation failed


Firstly, that error code should probably say bootstrap instead of boostrap.

Secondly, why does this fail?  I got this pxeboot_ia32.bin from the
ftp build of base.tgz.
I am doing this on my mac, but installboot is just modifying a few
bytes of the file.
