Hi, I'm searching for an OS for my sun3s, and I'd quite like to use
NetBSD if possible...
However, the latest I'd heard is that it effectively requires an OS
installed on the machine in order to install it...
I'd like to know whether there is any way of creating a boot tape
(using a Sony NEWS) and installing it from that.  The other method
that seems to be used is to just unpack the files onto the disk...
Easier said than done with an unformatted disk an no OS with which
to unpack it <Grin>

Any suggestions/pointers?

Thanks for any help,
