I don't have a serial cable, and while I could probably get one, I'd like
to try installing NetBSD without one.  If I copy the netbsd.gz to
/usr/games/.doug and boot it, will it load an nfs filesystem?  The kernel
config file has "root on ?" and NFS_BOOT_DHCP.  So I'm guessing this is
sufficent?  I just need to setup a filesystem, press the button, and it
will work?
