I'm thinking that a new NetBSD/dreamcase boot program that did DHCP
and NFS would be pretty cool!  No need to configure any slave loader,
or frob any ARP entries.  And, we have a good framework to do this with.

...just burn the bootloader onto a CD-R and go!  And then it'll netboot
like any other NetBSD system.
