Subject: Qube2 will boot 1.6.2, no 2.0

my Qube2 netboots the 1.6.2 kernel, but not the 2.0 one. This seems to
be too large, so I commented out some drivers.

.gz is now 976882, decompresses to about 23xxxxx bytes. Should be OK (?).

I booted using "bfd /netbsd.gz root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/diskless/co". I have 
not plugged in a harddisk at the moment (does that matter? think 'no').

The following happens:
- Fetches kernel
- Reboots (green light goes off and on)
- Erases minicom screen (damn...)
- Since it reboots, tries to fetch kernel from disk -of course failing-
- System halted

The error message I get is useless, since it refers to the non-bootable 
disk. I don't get any info or output why the 2.0 kernel does not boot.

What's wrong here?

Thanks for any help!
