I found it via archie (sigh...); I'll e-mail you a copy seperately.

I spent an awful lot of time trying to get a 3/60 to netboot
properly, and I've meant to send flames over here, but I've been a bit

Various problem I had included:

	Getting it to NFS mount the swap. This required hacking the netbsd
	mountd to accept the mount requests...

	Trying to get the serial console to work properly. I had to munge
	around w/ files in /dev for a while.

There were some other notable things (perhaps I was just being stupid),
but I cannot remember them all right now...
