 Currently in the process to make a NetBSD CD-ROM I ask myself
what is required to make it possible to boot from CD-ROM.

 Would it really be sufficient to have the entire / tree (base10) unpacked
on the CD, along with devices node entries in /dev, boot with loadbsd -b
and tell the kernel to boot from cd0 ?

 Does the kernel seeks for UFS or can it work with cd9660, too?

 If UFS - how about providing a multi-session CD, whereas the boot session
is UFS?

 Questions over questions... any takers or pointers please?
