Hmm. I'd been using

        NetBSD 1.0_BETA (DISKLESS) #343: Fri Jul 29 00:12:08 EDT 1994

which booted single user automatically...

I haven't gotten the GENERIC #427 to get past the clock error yet
(this time it says the clock is 6 days behind), and my ethernet has
gone to the dogs again (I begin to wonder about the state of this sun3
I'm working on). In the meantime...

Sorry, I don't have SunOS handy... (I really need to get a disk for
this machine...)

You misunderstand; it gets the db> prompt and hangs. No keystrokes
echo, and nothing happens. I have to power cycle the machine.
