I kept the documentation I used here: http://www.tumfatig.net/docs/20_hard/machine/Kurobox%20-%20install%20debian.html http://www.tumfatig.net/docs/20_hard/machine/Kurobox%20-%20install%20netbsd.html They are from the kurobox wiki. To install the box another way I was thinking of: - buy the disk - plug the disk, via an USB adaptor, to you laptop - partition, untar, ... the NetBSD stuff onto the disk - tune the installation (add ssh, network, ...) - plug the disk into the kurobox and boot it. As I said, that's what I did with my landisk and it's quite easier than the method described above :-) As far as I understand, netbsd_load is what you describe. I wanted to know if there were any other method to boot NetBSD.
