I think I'm missing something. You don't actually have a running
NetBSD/pmax system at the moment? If not, then you'll have to get
started with the options listed in the install notes - netbooting,
or copying the diskimage to the start of a disk with a helper system.
There was a recent thread here where Mauricio Tavares was starting
to get some success netbooting off a win95 box, but I'm not sure how
far he got.
