Ofwboot boots from any OFW device. It will look automatically for the NetBSD
kernel on the same device it was booted from.

Yes, sure. I'm usually booting ofwboot and netbsd with TFTP. In OFW you have
to enter "boot eth ofwboot" (provided the eth alias is set).
You can also enable DHCP and an NFS server to run the whole file system
over the net (in case you want to do more than looking at the dmesg-output ;).
