I installed NetBSD 4 (base, etc and comp) installation sets without kernel
(Gemdos 8+3 file name restriction messes up it's name and I'm using loadbsd.ttp
to launch NetBSD kernel from TOS). I was able to boot up system by using
loadbsd.ttp with -a flag.
I'm wondering if there's still following problem?
Could it be so simple issue that bootloader does not find kernel ?
