Hi all,

I've searched the archives and see that one or two people have NetBSD 
running on 2100A's.  Please tell me how you did it?

I have two of these beasts and I can't find any OS installer that will boot 
them.  They currently have no OS on them, and I don't have another machine 
to do cross-compiles or anything like that.  I can't do any kind of a 
network install, since I only have a dial-up connection.  Basically I have 
a CD-Rom drive to install from and that's it.

The standard installer (I've tried 1.6) doesn't seem to boot this machine, 
at least not for me.  Is there a non-standard install CD I can download 
from somewhere?  Or will the 2.0 installer handle this now?

Any pointers etc, gratefully accepted.

Paul Baughman
