 Well, I tried a little harder and cannot even get to the correct booting
stage. I have followed the instructions in the mispco installation guide,
and performed the following

I can boot from the following devices

 tty: console uart
console: pseudo console
video: video console
dksd: Internal SCSI disk controller
bfs: boot server/Sonic ethernet
tqsd: Internal SCSI tape

So, Instead of doing "setenv bootfile bootp()netbsd "
I do a "setenv bootfile bfs()netbsd"

However, a tcpdump gives me the following.

09:31:50.944379 > udp 39
09:31:53.179810 > udp 39
09:31:56.179930 > udp 39
09:31:59.180050 > udp 39
09:32:02.180170 > udp 39
09:32:05.180290 > udp 39
09:32:08.180410 > udp 39

And of course the boot fails.

I assume this is not a normal bootp request, is that correct?
