not available, dont have access on the system
Netbooting netbsd macppc current (6.99.23)results in an unreadable console 
output. ssh access is not feasible. Console output is like: "blurred text 
-mixed pixels which they seem like words- scrolling upward to the screen". The 
output is unreadable.
I have also used kernel 6.99.15 -this one resides on the disk of the laptop and 
i copied it on the netboot server- but the console output on the laptop is the 
same when this kernel is used for netbooting.
Laptop is G4 aluminum case 1.33.
Netboot macppc using current kernel and userland (6.99.23)
