I was able to install NetBSD on a 5000/400 several months ago using VMS.
I had been trying to netboot it, but the console firmware wasn't
cooperating at the time. Since the machine already had OpenVMS installed,
I just used OpenVMS to copy the cdhdtape image to a second disk. I think
the command I used was something like: '$COPY CDHDTAPE. DKA500:'. Then
I was able to boot the install kernel from the second disk.
