I've just got myself a qube 2 and want to put NetBSD on to run IP Filter and
maybe some file serving. I've never used NetBSD in my life. I have spent some
time reading up on how to get NetBSD onto the qube, but want to check before I
start. Basically *really* don't want to have to mess around taking the disk in
and out of different machines. The FAQ indicates that it is possible to install
remotely without a serial interface, so that's what I want to do. I think I want
to netboot from the freebsd box. The FAQ is helpful, but whee do I get a kernel
which the thing can netboot. I'd really like to be able to compile stuff on my
freebsd box as I have the feeling it will go about a hundred times faster, but
is this possible and where can I find out how? Also where do I get the source
files for the kernel to compile it. I downloaded the kernel file someone linked
to recently which should work for the netboot, but what about the kernel to
install onto the system?

Any help is gratefully received as I really want to get it working, and I'm
willing to read any doco if you can give me some pointers.
