I only saw that when I had forgotten to put the correct file on the TFTP
server. So, it might be some TFTP permissions/setup problem.

Yes. There must be some subtle difference which makes the driver work on
some models but not others.

Yes. I will do that. I have been looking at the main NetBSD SK driver,
and also at the altboot driver up to now.

Indeed. Cross-compiling is nice and easy with the NetBSD source set up
(I do this all the time). I guess that there is also the standard linux
driver to look at.
My other computer also runs NetBSD / Sailing at Newbiggin
