First, you should still boot it in single user mode for now.

The clock problem is something that (I think) I fixed recently.
You might make sure you have the latest kernel: (netbsd-gen.gz)
  @(#)NetBSD 1.0 (GENERIC) #427: Tue Oct 25 02:00:49 EDT 1994
Anyway, make sure the kernel is up to date before you bother to
replace the clock battery.  (Does SunOS complain about the clock?)

That's what it's supposed to do.  With DDB, it's sort of like when
SunOS is booted under kadb;  L1-A drops into the debugger.
If you want to drop into the prom, you can do:

  db> call sun3_rom_halt

By the way, I'm making progress on the pmap code.
I think the Sun3/50 video is taken care of now,
but I don't have a Sun3/50 to test it on (yet).
