I thought a bit more about bootxx_cd9660 yesterday...
right now it seems one cannot do anything useful after interrupting the 5 
second count-down, e.g.

1) "ls" gives
    > ls
    : Not a directory

2) Cannot boot another kernel even when knowing the name:

    > boot netbsd-NOON
    booting cd0a:netbsd-NOON
    open netbsd-NOON: No such file or directory
    boot: cd0a:netbsd-NOON: No such file or directory

I think having this available would be the very least to make a bootable 
CD that has several kernels on them, i.e. thinking of the many i386 
INSTALL* kernels we have right now.

Do you happen to know how to fix this? It's certainly beyond me...
