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.
