Please refer to port-alpha/6446 which I filed quite some time ago.
I can help via email, but I do not have access to any Multias at
the moment so I cannot actually fix this myself. Basically, the
short form was from memory: if you hard-code the ethernet address
in netbsd.alpha then broken_firmware will be set to 1 in
/sys/arch/alpha/stand/netboot/if_prom.c. This doesn't work for
the Multia which needs a hard-coded ethernet address, but
broken_firmware = 0.
