Would you mind telling me which version are you using to do this ? Last
time I tried it, it all ended with a lot of SCSI errors. But I am very
interested in getting it to install on SCSI disk and to boot from it.
Unfortunately I don't have any other NetBSD installations that I could
use to cross-compile anything. Netboot works OK, although I remember
kernel panics in interrupt handlers from time to time (when LAN gets too
busy perhaps).
