System: Sun Ultra 10

	I've extracted the recently announced sparc64.tar.gz in the / of
	my Ultra 10 which already ran NetBSD. I took special note that 
	there was a kernel in there, and it was installed as /netbsd.
	Upon reboot, I get:

mountroot: trying ffs...
root file system type: ffs
init: copying out flags `-s' 3
init: copying out path `/sbin/init' 11
execve: copyargs failed
panic: init died (signal 6, exit 0)
kdb breakpoint at 0xf1275a80
Stopped in init at      cpu_Debugger+0x4:       nop

	Use sparc64.tar.gz, and use the kernel in it to boot.

	Someone give me a working kernel, please. :)
