put "netbsd" in quotes. i.e.:
boot dka200 -fi "netbsd" -fl "-s"
the various versions of DEC firmware i've seen are ... rather
inconsistent about what quoting they require. It's likely that it's
trying NETBSD, rather than netbsd, because you didn't use quotes; that
error 2 is ENOENT, i.e. the file requested couldn't be found.
Did the boot blocks print anything before that error? (i seem to
recall that they used to print out the name of the kernel they were
loading, but i'm not sure if that's changed.)
