I think this is a user rather than port specific question.

I am trying to install NetBSD on my MicroVAX II and am booting from tape
as it has no network card.  I get:

>>>b MUA0


>> NetBSD/vax boot [Mar 7 2000 04:32:44 <<
>> Press any key to abort autoboot 0
> boot netbsd
boot failed: No such file or directory
> boot netbsd.gz
boot failed: Not a directory
> boot netbsd.old
boot failed: Not a directory
> boot gennetbsd
boot failed: Not a directory

I have made the tape on a MicroVAX 3100 running NetBSD using dd and
following the instructions in the FAQ, with particular reference to the
fact that the blocksize must be 512 so  that isnt the problem.

Any ideas?
