  I can't make my Sun 3/60M boot a NetBSD-1.1 tape.

  I get this on boot up:

>> NetBSD tapeboot [$Revision: 1.3 $]
exec: short read
tapeboot: 1: Input/output error
tapeboot: segment? [1]

  I wrote the tape on the same machine using SunOS 4.1.1, and using the 
MakeBootTape script provided.  I checked the checksums of the files I 
have, and verified that they aren't corrupt.  I tried writing the tape 
with an EOF after each segment as well, with the same result.
