System: NetBSD cowboy-burt 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (COWBOY-BURT) #1: Sat Oct 2 21:08:08 EDT 1999 dan@cowboy-burt:/amd/dinah-moe/export/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/COWBOY-BURT sparc


it would be nice if "netbsd.alpha" and "netbsd.alpha.gz" were looked for by the 
boot program.  That way on CD's where you might have several kernels named like
netbsd.${ARCH} in / you can use netbsd.alpha and not have to pass in the kernel name.

look at:
