I read the FAQ http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/cobalt/faq.html and try to
setup my Cobalt server with it, but the kernel that would be available
for NFS boot at: http://heorot.stanford.edu/tedu/netbsd.gz. go dead from
So, I am thinking of copying all the files I need on the Hard Drive that
I would install on a different workstation and after all the files are
copied, I would then put the drive back in my Cobalt RaQ2. I have been
looking and searching on google for HowTo to do this, but so far I
haven't find the information that would allow me to successfully do it
yet. I saw some reference (question) in the FAQ about that, but no
suggestions, or solutions. I have about 12 of these Cobalts that I would

So, I think now the easiest for me is simply to put the drive in a
different BSD workstation and do what ever need to be done to get it up

all the 11 others.
Any help, specially useful URL to example would be more then welcome if
I can abuse of your time a bit.
I really appreciate any answer send my way.
Thanks in advance.
