Re: pushing netbsd-5 (Was: bootloader)
netbsd-ATARITT.gz -> netbsd-A.gz

I think it makes more sense to drop the "netbsd" part out of the filename.
When I do an install, I take netbsd-ATARITT and just rename it to ATARITT.

Yes, they're truncated just like that, so we need some unique names.
Does anyone have any objections to the renaming given above?
It's shame that naming breaks consistency, but otherwise there's no way to
install kernel during installation from Gemdos partition.
Anyway I think that suggested renaming is Ok.
