What does the 3X on the kernel stand for?  I seem to be confusing that
with sun3x architecture?

Sounds good to me.

What is the best way to bring it up on a cold machine.

I was thinking of using sunos or netbsd-1.3.2 to boot and set up the disks,
copy a miniroot from 1.3.2 to swap and use that to unroll the tarballs via
tape or ftp.

Should that work, or should this snapshot be handled differently?

I always use tape or ftp installs, so no info on that from this end.
