Yah, and also to make sure that CPU_LOADANDRESET works, so perhaps
a kernel with dhcp support could be burned to the CD, mount a nfs root
and then reload a new kernel on top of that.  I don't know if this will
only work on the mmeye or not, but it sure seems slick.

And at some point it might even be interesting to replace the dreamcast
firmware with a NetBSD kernel, for a completely diskless system. :)
(ok, not too likely I suppose...)
