I cannot seem to get my Sun 3/80 to install NetBSD/sun3x 1.3.2.  I have
the whole TFTP and NFS thing working okay, but then the netbsd-rd kernel
decides that it doesn't have a ramdisk.  Here's a brief excerpt: 

Selftest Completed.

Is 4 MB of RAM insufficient to properly load the ramdisk?  Or am I having
other problems?
