I just acquired a DECstation 5000/240 with 40 megs of ram.  It doesn't
appear to have a framebuffer.  None of the turbochannel slots are used.  
I got a serial console up and reset the nvram.  I had hoped to bring up
NetBSD diskless but, to my dismay, I discover that my prom version will
not boot via tftp.  Rats!  

I currently lack the cabling to hook up a scsi drive.

I see that this prom will try mop.  I tried that and mopd over yonder sees
a request and will try to send a file.  But what to send?  Is there a
secondary boot loader that this box can get via mop and that then can grab
and run a kernel?
