Per the message below, in the interest of prudence, I'd like to check in
with other active port maintainers / developers on the same subject;
specifically, some of the more exotic(1) ports.
With regards to:
1) Are these instructions still valid?
2) Are there any notes / caveats / changes related to the upcoming 2.0
3) To help me improve the docs, could someone please test/verify and send me the
script(1) output of the process so that I may include any stdout/stderr
of importance that may be beneficial to illustrating the process.
1. Defined as "exotic" if I have haven't had the pleasure of working
with due to lack of hardware access. =)
[sorry, itchy trigger finger]
I'm in the process of trying to merge some of the traditional htdocs
*.list HTMl docs into the NetBSD Guide (XML/DocBook) in an attempt to
reduce a bit of overlap. Specifically I'm adding notes regarding the
use of the Makefile make iso-image target system in src/etc/ in
additional to manual mkisofs(8) generation -- however, for sgimips,
which appears to support this method, boot-cdrom.list references this
...when I convert the port-sgimips instructions, shall I copy this
original content verbatim including the URL. should I include the
directions contained within that URL, or does someone have updated
instructions that they'd like to contribute?
I don't see any `04 posts in the list archives related to CD-ROMs...and
I don't track port-sgimips very closely.

That URL (and the instructions therein) are obsolete.
NetBSD/sgimips uses the make iso-image method; the boot procedure is
documented in the INSTALL doc.
