I have a nice semi-new DEC Celebris with a P100 and 16MB.  For disk
it has a 800MB IDE Maxtor.  I can install NetBSD just fine.  However, 
I can't boot from hard disk.

I get

	Read error

I can boot via floppy.  I've tried this using the entire disk and have
a real DOS partition table and a NetBSD partition.  The same thing happens.
I boot view floppy and boot the hard disk and that works fine.
