Hello All,

I know that i do something wrong, but WHAT?

When i tried to install the netBSD (sgimips boot disk 1.6.1)

I followed the installation manual, and typed;

setenv systempartition scsi(0)drive(3)rdisk(0)partition(8)
setenv osloadpartition scsi(0)drive(3)rdisk(0)partition(0)
setenv osloaderfilename netbsd
setenv  osloadoptions auto
setenv osloader boot

and i receive the error message;

dsk0d3s8: volume header not valid
cannot load scsi(0)cdrom(3)partition(8)sashARCS // media not loaded

I think/know that i do something wrong BUT WHAT?

There wat an other instruction on the sgimips page, about setting the 
boot, this links is not valid anymore though.
