yesterday i tried to install a friend's cobalt raq1 with the recovery-cd.
the installation hangs, the last thing i see is "starting local daemons"
the instructions provided with the recovery cd are not very helpful in my
opinion, so just inserted the cd bootet my pc with it and turned on the raq.
i did not modify the disk manually, does the cd require a netbsd prepared disk ?
here's what i get from the serial console (only the last lines):
nfs_boot: DHCP next-server: 10.0.0.254
nfs_boot: my_domain=mfg.cobaltmicro.com nfs_boot: my_addr=10.0.0.160
