Does anyone know the complete syntax for the Cobalt Raq2 boot command bfd?
I've most of the posts and FAQ and have seen the "bfd kernel.gz 
nfsroot=nfsroot" command.
This doesn't automatically cause my Raq2 to netboot, rather it tries 
booting from disk first.
The problem is that my disk is whacked and causes the boot process to 
die in a db> prompt.  

I was previously able to specify tpl0 as the boot device, but after 
screwing up my disk via fdisk (d'oh), the system no longer gives me the 
option of specifying the boot device, goes straight to the disk, and 
crashes out to a db> prompt.

I'm not currently in front of the system console now so I can't include 
the console output for analysis.
