I installed NetBSD 2.0 on a SS20. The installation went good, but
after the installation, I can't boot:

Boot device: /iommu/sbus/espdma@f,400000/esp@f,800000/sd@3,0  File and args: 
>> NetBSD/sparc Secondary Boot, Revision 1.14

Booting vmunix
device[/iommu@f,e0000000/sbus@f,e0001000/espdma@f,400000/esp@f,800000/sd@3,0:a] ("halt" to halt): 
boot (press RETURN to try default list): 

I booted then from CD, mounted the root filesystem and looked if
the kernel is there:

# ls -l netbsd
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  3579390 Dec  2 01:57 netbsd

Any ideas what is going wrong here?
