Re: Announcing KuroBox support

Not yet. Currently the kernel still needs to be loaded from the network. But
the next step will be to implement IDE/SATA support into the netboot tool,
which already supports boot options.

You can copy netboot into the flash then. I already did that with my
Synology box.

Or when the disk doesn't contain a bootable kernel/filesystem. Yes, that's
the plan. I would propose that netboot tries to boot in the following order:

1. local disk: netbsd.sandpoint
2. local disk: netbsd
3. network: netbsd.sandpoint
4. network: netbsd
