install on the /260 went flawlessly (except for normal sysinst problems, luckily
i'm experienced with installing NetBSD sans sysinst)

thanks for the info, but it's not related to that.  it's getting it's ip and
trying to tftp the kernel, but it looks like the lance ethernet is hosed.

i think it's time to try a different /2x0 mainboard, i think this one may not

obviously not helped.

i'll report back once i get the new mainboard.
