I had the same problem when installing NetBSD on my Sun 3/60.  You need 
to go to the directory /pub/NetBSD/arch/sun3/install-11-p1 and get a copy 
of the new netboot program (I think that's the one).  That will take care 
of the Requesting Internet address problem.

Yes, you need to run the bootparamd program, and one is in the Xkernel 
package.  If you can't find it, I can send one to you via e-mail or ftp.
