I finally got my Raq do something useful, doing a netboot ("bfd /netbsd.gz
nfsroot=/home/raq/root"). After loading the kernel, I get:

tlp1: interrupting at level 2
tlp1: Ethernet address 00:10:e0:00:52:77
lxtphy1 at tlp1 phy 1: LXT970 10/100 media interface, rev. 3
lxtphy1: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
scsibus0: waiting 2 seconds for devices to settle...
probe(siop0:0:0): command timeout

Then it hangs. Is there a kernel somewhere that does not have the siop
driver? I have nothing hooked up to the controller (and don't have
anything handy right now ;-)

Another question: is it only me who sees lots of dropped characters on the
serial console?
