I recall reading that pxeboot_ia32_com0.bin was changed because
installboot could be used for setting serial options, but I'm a little
confused on how to get setup initially with a binary distribution. If
I use pxeboot_ia32.bin from HEAD's base.tgz, it doesn't work over
com0, my ability to run 'installboot' on it from a non-netbsd system
is pretty limited, and so I'm stuck.
Just a bit of chicken-and-egg I ran into last night.
Luckily, 3.0's base.tgz distro includes pxeboot_ia32_com0.bin.
