Hmm, I always thought my PS2 (the european version) somehow wasn't compatible
with NetBSD/playstation2 since booting the kernel (following the web
instructions) failed. Now Jared D. McNeill notified me that he had the
same problem - but booting directly from p2lboot worked.
I tried that, and indeed it worked for me too. I added this line to
"NetBSD" netbsd.gz "" 203 /dev/hda1 "" NetBSD on Memory Card
and copied the gzipped kernel onto the memory disk. It worked just fine.
So, did I do something stupid when using redboot? Can someone describe the
boot process in more detail?
And I guess we should update the web instructions...
