I currently wanted to install NetBSD 1.1 on one of my Sun 3/60's. I retrieved
the files tapeboot, netbsd-rd and miniroot from and wrote them
to tape following the instructions in INSTALL.TXT.

When I want to boot from this tape with "b st()", I always get the following

scsi: dma never completed
scsi: bus busy
Boot: load failed

I'm using an internal tape drive in my Sun 3/60. I have written the files with
an SGI (IRIX 5.2) to a compatible tape drive, since the Sun is w/o OS, hence

I hope someone can help me with this.
Thanx in advance
