I am booting by going to the open firmware prompt and entering this
This boots NetBSD 8.1 fine. This does not boot NetBSD 9.0 beta image
that I have, including when passing it the location of the kernel image.
In all cases I can test I get the error I listed previously:
unrecognized Client Program format
my understanding is that this error is given by Open Firmware when it
does not recognize the format of the file you have told it to load, in
this case I would presume that means ofwboot.xcf, as a valid xcoff image
or chrp boot script.
