Yes. I know. :-)
I think I started running NetBSD on the 8650 in the 1.6 timeframe. Our 11/750 was running 0.9, thanks to you. :-) And the migration to the 8650 was done from the 11/750. We just moved the disk over until we had something that worked. And initially out boot came from MtXinu if I remember right. Or we might just have used MtXinu to write the NetBSD boot to the console RL02. Can't remember the details... But at some point, we started supporting booting using VMB instead, and that made life much easier...
