So are you trying to create a bootloader, like LILO or yaboot, that
automatically boots NetBSD after X seconds, but before that you can
press keys to boot other OSs?
There is a forth script for open firmware based on yaboot that I have
used before (that does what I described). I can send it to you, if that
is what you are looking for.
