	I have been attempting to get netbsd installed on some 
personal decstation 5000/25s. Using a decstation running ultrix 4.3 I 
have been able to successfully dd miniroot onto the scsi device. My 
problem is that it does not appear to be recognizing the boot blocks. 

	From the ROM monitor when I try 'boot 3/rz3c netbsd' you can hear it 
accessing the drive and then it gives me an error about not being able to 
boot that device. I was using the directions straight from the pmax 
installation guide. However I have a question.

QUESTION: I seem to remember something floating past this list a couple 
          of months ago about the installation guides flags to dd being 
          incorrect. Is this the case? I was trying:

             'dd if=miniroot of=/dev/rz3c seek=16'
