         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.
