I sent this to Christian only earlier , apologies for that.

Has anyone else tried this ? Any success ?

I have tried the snapshot from in NetBSD-daily dir and your
SCSI kernel with console support. It worked for a while, then I get the
following error :

xe0: out of receive DMA buffers

and it drops me into debugger. It does detect the disk though, and
disklabel -e -I sd0 showed some useful values (it crashed while I had
that in vi). uname -a reports the following :

NetBSD next 1.5ZX NetBSD 1.5ZC (SCSI) #0 Wed May 29 01:44:51 CEST 2002

Machine is 25Mhz mono, and I am net-booting it for the moment (bootp and
NFS server are on Linux).

Is this specifically for booting from disk ?
