OK, I finally got NetBSD to boot.
> boot hd:2,ofwboot.xcf hd:6
then NetBSD bootloader says: "open hd:6. No such file or directory".
if I enter
I enter in NetBSD but I'm still wondering if my initial PROM command is
right... I tried "boot hd:2,ofwboot.xcf hd:6/netbsd" but got stucked
into a "pretty" grey screen with a (X) in the middle %-)
anyone can complete my PROM command ?
