Hi, I have an AlphaStation 200/166 that Im trying to install NetBSD.
I don't have a copy of Digital Unix, so the only way to dd the image onto the
hard drive is to remote boot.

I think I've setup everything properly according to the diskless manpage for

My Alpha boots and loads /tftpboot/netbsd from my server
after it gets to jumping to bootstrap code, I get:

halted CPU 0

halt code = 2
kernel stack not valid halt
PC = 0

Any ideas as to why this would happen, and what it's looking for that it
can't find?

Thanks in advance,
