Here where I got and did it a few months ago. I do not know if the
version was updated to 1.61 or if it is still the 1.6, but it work like
a charme;

Go here and get the ISO bootable CD file:

1. Burn the ISO to CD.
2. Boot the CD in an i386 machine.
3. Netboot the cobalt (hold Left and Right buttons together when 
powering on - status will read "Net Booting")
4. Telnet to the machine, away you go, follow the FAQ. Prepare to do the
disk partitioning several times if you've never done a BSD install
before - 
keep the NetBSD Guide handy for tips.

When the Cobalt reboot you can telnet or rlogin into it at the IP from the i386 computer you use to setup the cobalt.

I love this way. From that to finish, I get a cobalt up an running in 10
minutes and the fun part of it is that you can even enjoy a beer as the
system works for you! (:>

In the end, if that doesn't work for you and you want to get ride of
your Cobalt, by all mean contact me. I will get them from you! (:>

Hope this help.
