I'm having trouble installing netbsd on $SUBJ system.
I've burned 1.6.1 prepcd.iso on cdrom, but it fails to boot (after pressing
F5 on boot, to force booting from removable media, the driver flashes a bit
then it give up and tries to use bootp).
I've also tried to write generic.fs, generic_com0.fs and sysinst_com0.fs on
floppy and boot, with no success.

The hardware must be ok, as i burned AIX 4.3 image too and it boots
fine from cdrom (after F5).

Actually what i need is a HOWTO or INSTALL doc describing the install
procedure, but i couldn't find such text nor on netbsd site, nor on the
prepcd.iso cdrom. (readme says that there should be a file named INSTALL but

I've find references to 'Mr. Nonaka's informations' on maillist archives
but couldn't find the referenced text.
