I just got my hands on a 3000/300x. It powers up fine, but netbooting
fails. I guessed that it seems to like netbooting via MOP, so I get
"netboot" from the installation dir, put it in /tftpboot/mop, made a
symlink to it, and tried to netboot the 3000/300x. It fails thusly:
>>> boot esa0
?05 HLT INSTR
PC= 00000000.20000004 PSL= 00000000.00001F00
Does anyone have any ideas?
I've upgraded the flash as well. No help, unfortunately. Here's the boot
DEC 3000 - M300X
Digital Equipment Corporation

It's netbooting from a NetBSD-1.4.1 sparc machine (sparc 2), which I've
netbooted other sparcs from before.
If I can't netboot, does anyone have any other great ideas?
