  A friend and I have finally got NetBSD to the stage of acquiring it's
kernel from a Linux box and booting (after quite a lot of work and
frustration with tftpd :) but after the kernel begins to boot we get
the message to the effect of starting console with kdb0.  Our machine
is a 3/60 and has the onboard mono framebuffer but no keyboard/monitor
attached (we're using a serial console on ttya).   How do we tell NetBSD
to use that instead of the framebuffer/keyboard?
