I've got the base filesystem setup. And now have managed to get it to the
point where the kernel loads. (I think. I can see it go out over the
wire.) So I think it is in fact waiting for a hint about NFS.
I think the following should work:
-config netbsd root on ? type ?
+config netbsd root on ? type nfs
no? Unfortunately, I can't build such a kernel. Any kind souls willing
to do so and post on web/mail it to me?
