Let me know if ports-macppc would be a more appropriate list.

I had an old wallstreet laying around and decided to try a NetBSD install.
I followed all of the instructions...

install the OF patches to NVRAM per docs
shutdown Mac OS
start up to OF prompt
setenv auto-boot? false
setenv load-base 600000
setenv real-base F00000
start up to OF prompt
install first of 2 install floppies for macppc 3.1
boot fd2:,\OFWBOOT.XCF

installer runs, prompts for second floppy

installer kernel startup messages until gets to "scsibus0: waiting 2
seconds for devices to settle..."

It doesn't progress beyond that. Any ideas?
