Hey there,					Feb 10, 2001

    Is there anyone else working on a secondary boot loader
for the DECStations?  Seems like the only way to get around
this game of making funky kernels, and maybe the way
to netboot machines that only support MOP loading (short of writing
a new mop server).   This would be a small program that could
be tftp or MOP booted, which when loaded could use NFS, tftp,
or whatever to get the ball rolling. 

     Many of the other ports use this method.  Two that I
have personally used include HP300s and Sparc.

     If anyone has already started this, or has any suggestions
please feel free to drop me a note, or comment on the list.
