I'm afraid I've been letting the discussion of installation on the
5000/120 series wash over me because, until now, I've not had a spare
disk. I now have a spare disk and am attempting to install NetBSD on it.
I'm using the installation instructions from the web pages at www.netbsd.org.
Using those instructions, I have labelled a disk and copied the miniroot
to the disk. I cannot boot the disk.
Using the boot command given by the instructions gives me a syntax error
message from the monitor. Something like this:
>> boot 3/rz0a/netbsd
Using something the monitor likes gives me an error from (I believe) the
NetBSD boot program:
>> boot 3/rz0/netbsd
open(3/rz0/netbsd) failed: 21
Can't boot '3/rz0/netbsd'
