Sorry, I don't have an answer, but maybe you can help me out (since
this list doesn't get too much traffic):

I have one of those boxes I'm trying to install on. I can't figure out 2 th=

1. How to set the firmware to a serial console
2. How to get it to boot from floppy or the network before going to disk

I get to a firmware prompt, I think with F4? But then I'm not able to
get it to boot from floppy. It reads it but with no console output (on
the VGA) and it just hangs.

Once I get NetBSD installed I can hopefully help out with your questions :)
