*  Improve the SGI bootloader --  Currently booting a sgimips machine
   requires different boot commands depending on the architecture. It is
   not possible to use the firmware menu to boot from CD.
   An improved primary bootstrap should ask the firmware for architecture
   detail, and automatically boot the correct kernel for the current
   architecture by default.=20

My other computer also runs NetBSD!
