Recently I noticed the SPARC boot/disklabel support in cdrecord, and I
wondered whether the next68k disklabel could also exist on an ISO CD.
But it seems the NeXT label starts at the beginning of the disk
(LABELSECTOR == LABELOFFSET == 0), so it probably won't fit on an ISO CD.

Is this supported for any framebuffer-only port? I always thought the
ports which had this used the text capabilities of VGA hardware (or

More specifically, with the 2003-10-15 -current releng snapshot (1.6ZD)
my ADB color turbo can netboot the kernel, but it freezes hard
immediately after the wsdisplay0 line (no reaction to ping, keyboard,
NMI, power switch; no network activity after the kernel load). Well, at
least the booter works, and the display is also fine.
I'll try with my other slab soon (ADB-capable color turbo with non-ADB
periphery). Has anyone recently tested a non-ADB turbo?
