I just catched up with -current (sup from this morning) and tried the
new setroot changes.

Looked like this:

NetBSD 1.2C (RUMOLT) #2: Mon Feb 24 14:39:13 MET 1997
tel0 at isa0 port 0xd80-0xd87 irq 12: Teles S0/16.3
biomask a40 netmask 1e40 ttymask 1e5a
boot device: sd0
root device (default sd0a): ?
use one of: sd0[a-h] sd1[a-h] cd0[a-h] ed0 tel0 fd0[a-h] halt

I do understand howto boot from sd0, sd1, cd0, ed0 and fd0. I don't
know how to boot from my ISDN card tel0.

If I could somehow boot via ISDN (some Cisco's do that, right?) I would
have to use one of the interfaces (network or character) attached to the
card, not the physical card driver I guess. So simple question: how should
I tell the setroot code which of my devices to include in this list and
which to ignore?
