I am attempting to install NetBSD 1.2 on a Personal
DecStation 5000/20. I have successfully booted NetBSD
diskless off of a Pentium machine running Linux. After this
I have untarred base.tar.gz onto the DecStation. However I
can't get the DecStation to boot from the drive. So I have
two questions: 1) where do I need to put the kernel? and 2)
What is the correcty format for the prom boot command I have
tried boot 3/rz1/netbsd (the drive is SCSI ID 1) which seemed
to find the drive (unlike boot 3/rz1a/netbsd which gave me a
device error.) but still wouldn't boot.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
