Maybe I'm missing your point: this would mean that I need to get a DE422
(that's what the Jensen has) driver working. 

I currently have D-Unix on the first disk, NetBSD 1.2 on the second.
I can use D-Unix to drop test kernels, generated by the Multia, onto
the Jensen's NetBSD disk. 

Isn't that an easier approach than netbooting? It's probably easier
for me to get a Adaptec 1742A driver working than a DE422 one (I've
done SCSI drivers in the distant past, networking drivers are unchartered
