Okay, it's a little more complicated that the subject. I have a Sun
3/60 that, until quite recently, was running SunOS 4.1.1. For some
bizarre inexplicable reason, /dev/zero stopped working. Now everything
that's dynamically linked dies a horrible death, and life is generally
unpleasant. ;) 

I have no way of reinstalling SunOS, and meant to try NetBSD on it
sooner or later, so I figure now's probably a good time. ;) So is
there any way to install a bootable NetBSD/sun3 system on a disk, from
another platform? 

If all else fails, I might be able to comandeer a system somewhere to
netboot from, and then install the disk.
