Currently NetBSD runs only on machines with OFW.

But as far as I remember, I booted AIX on the Motorola Ultra board after
upgrading it to OFW, before overwriting the disk with NetBSD.  So this
shouldn't be a problem.

You probably need a separate disk for this to work, as AIX (afaik) wants to
use complete disks for its own purposes.
