OS-BS doesn't work? I thought it did. (ver 2.0, I have, the beta)
oh well, perhaps take your DOS partition, make it a little bit
smaller (w/ FIPS), and create a NetBSD micropartition (be careful here! )
with just enough room for the boot blocks. (you'll need to newfs it)
Install the NetBSD boot blocks on that mini partition,
get the NT loader to boot it (how?, dunno.)
and when the NetBSD boot loader boots
tell it to get the kernel from your scsi disk. ( boot sd0a:/netbsd )
