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 ftp.netbsd.org. What I get is:
(boot ewa0.0.0.5.0 -flags 0)
Trying BOOTP boot.

Received BOOTP Packet File Name is: /var/tftp/netbsd.alpha

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