BTW, releng now builds landisk netbsd-4.

Can you tell sh-ipl+g to boot off something else except the internal
hdd? I can't seem to get to the sh-ipl+g prompt on my usl-5p, it
"autotypes" 'b' and loads netbsd mbr boot off the disk (CF).

That's what I did for my USL-5P.

fdisk(8) and installboot(8). I have to check the man page every time
I need to use installboot, b/c I do it may be once in a few years
only. IIRC, assuming TOOLDIR in path and disk connected as, say, sd7,
$ shle--netbsdelf-fdisk -c /path/to/.../usr/mdec/mbr sd7
to write mbr boot code. Don't forget to mark the netbsd partition
active. And to install bootloader:
$ nbinstallboot -m landisk /dev/rsd7c \
I honestly don't remember. :)
