I have RTFFAQ and cannot find the answer to my problem so I hope it is
appropriate to ask here.

I have just downloaded NetBSD4.1.1 and am trying to install it.  I have
copied the boot.fs file to the VAX (VMS 5.1) and then initialised and
mounted the tape then copied the file to it.

When I try to boot from the tape I get:

>>>b/3 mka500

>> NetBSD/vax boot [May 7 1999 06:49:43] <<
>> Press any key to abort autoboot 0

And then it just sits there looking stupid.  What am I doing wrong?
