I'm trying to get NetBSD running on an AlphaPC 164, and not having
much luck.   I'm trying to boot the April snapshot kernel that's
sitting on   What I get is:

>>>boot ewa0
(boot ewa0. -flags 0)

Trying BOOTP boot.

jumping to bootstrap code

halted CPU 0

halt code = 2
kernel stack not valid halt
PC = 0               

Does anybody have any ideas as to why this is happening?   Do I need a
more recent kernel?
