This was the critical hint I needed, I found the issue in the DHCP server
settings and got it to get it's bootloader.

I'm getting a different issue now, however. If I do nothing, the bootloader
spits out this error message:

open lf0a:netbsd Input/output error

..and tries again on an endless loop. Manually typing in 'lf0a:netbsd' usually
fails with the same, but adding one of the prompted options (like -c) goes just
a bit further:

Start @ 0x2000000 [1=0xf0e000-0xf0e45c]
btlb info: minsz=128, maxsz=16384
btlb fixed: i=0, d=0, c=8
btlb varbl: i=0, d=0, c=0

This was with trying the SYSNBSD file from 6.0.1; results with trying
netinstall.lif and from SYSNBSD from 6.0 were similar.
