The sparc64 workstation is a 'Ultra 1 Creator'
with a UltraSparc IIi 167MHz CPU.


A fresh Installation of NetBSD 2.0 from cdrom
(official iso-image) runs through w/o problems
- until you want to boot the machine the first time:

'Fast Data Access MMU Miss'
and that's all. (BTW: I selected the FFSv2 filesystem)

To get a usable system, I have to install NetBSD 1.6.1 or 1.6.2 first.
Then boot from the NetBSD 2.0 CD and upgrade.
Then I have a bootable machine with NetBSD 2.0.

IMO, it should be possible to have a bootable machine from
the start.
