It should be quite straightforward, but what you need to do first is to
get the NetBSD boot program onto your RL02. Then you can boot over the
net to get started.

NetBSD should run very well on the 8600 nowadays; Johnny Billquist uses
it on their 8650 with quite good results. He will probably give you some
hints about how to deal with it :-)
