OK, I made a vanilla ISO CD-ROM with OFWBOOT.COF, NETBSD, and a couple of
folders with things like the base tarball in them. I tried booting it on
my 7500 at work (with a 604 upgrade so relax) and it didn't work.
The OF settings were default with auto-boot off, input=kbd,
output=/chaos/control. The boot command typed was
and the result was "RESETing SCSI bus" followed by a CR/LF after a second
or two. Then nothing. I get the same result if the file is garbag.fil
Is there something magic I don't know about OF, or does this just indicate
it didn't work?
Probably irrelevant, but I have an Adaptec 2940UW with my normal system
disk on it. The original CD-ROM and disk are still on the motherboard
SCSI. Nothing on the external SCSI. No other PCI boards. CPU is a Sonnet
150 MHz 604 upgrade card.

Signature failed Preliminary Design Review.
Feasibility of a new signature is currently being evaluated.
