Do you mean ABLE does load the kernel correctly, but just don't
know what it is, so it refuse to boot?
Regarding to what boot information, and how it should be provided to
NetBSD kernel, I don't know that either :)  Is there any document
describing the procedure of the boot sequence besides The Source?
