speaking of which.  i've got a DEC 3000/300LX running NetBSD, and it refuses to
boot at powerup.  when i power it on, it goes to the chevron (i heard someone
call that the dead sargent prompt, i like that better *G*) prompt and waits
for me to type boot.  i don't need to tell it anything else, it knows where to
boot from since BOOT is set, it knows to go into auto since BOOT_OSFLAGS is A,
but it won't do jack until i type boot.  how do i get this thing to just boot
at powerup like every other machine i have does?  even the VAXen and DECstations
know how to do it!! :)
