I am trying to install NetBSD on my MicroVAX 3100, and, having failed to
boot from tape due to the SCSI problems, I am trying to netboot the
installation. I have got the Linux end set up with the netbsd.ram.gz
kernel unzipped and renamed to netbsd in the exported root directory.
On the VAX console I get:
>>> b/100 esa0
>> NetBSD/vax boot [May 7 1999 06:49:43] <<
>> Press any key to abort autoboot 0
> boot netbsd
bootp: no reply
boot: client IP address: 192.168.0.3
boot: client name: vax
root addr=192.168.0.1 path=/usr/export/vaxclient/root
then it hangs.
The last messages on the linux box are in the bootparamd terminal
immediately prior to the root... line above.
Can anyone help?
