We're trying to replace Ultrix 4.2 on a bunch of old DecStations

We've downloaded the miniroot and boot blocks from stanford, and
dd'd them to a second disk.

When we try running the netbsd bootblocks, with:
>>boot 3/rz3/netbsd

we get:
Boot: 3/rz3/netbsd
Can't boot '3/rz3/netbsd'

--- end of output

It seems as if our monitor is incompatible with the boot loader.
We can't use the "boot rz(0,3,0)netbsd" syntax, because the monitor
doesn't support it.

Does anybody have a netbsd 'bootblock-dd' image that supports the
old monitor '3/rz3/netbsd' syntax?
