Well, I just tried 'boot 3/rz1/netbsd -a' with my installation and it was
fine. Unfortunately this will have to wait until 1.4.2 leaves me alone and
I have time to finish putting this guy together (including a reinstall on
a bigger disk).

BTW what the heck is -N for? I don't recall the pmax FAQ having anything
to say about it.
