      The default filename is netbsd; if the boot loader fails to
      successfully open that image, it then tries netbsd.gz (expected
      to be a kernel image compressed by gzip), followed by
      netbsd.old, netbsd.old.gz, onetbsd, and finally onetbsd.gz.
      Alternate system images can be loaded by just specifying the
      name of the image.
