Nope, but I have a work around. Due to filtering in our router set
up after a ping flood denial of service attack, I couldn't ping the
other NetBSD box I was using to help set up a PB3400c. Of course
sysinst refused to trust me about the settings, so a network install
wouldn't work. My work around was to scrounge up an external CD-ROM
drive. I put the floppy drive module in the PB, booted from that,
and installed from an ISO-9660 format CD I made on a Mac OS machine.
Of course this will only work if you happen to have a drive and the
HD-30 SCSI cable. I borrowed both from a PB2400c user.
