yep, i got it going, i didnt use 10baseT/UTP because the install file
10baseT instead (no /UTP) anyway i got it going...
but i seems that the install file for alpha needs a lot of work, like it
ref's that the kernel is in /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.3/alpha/binary/kernels
when its really in the sets directory...

also my system keeps booting to single user mode even though i changed the
thing in rc.conf to YES... is there a boot option i must supply to force
