Thanks to Michael (ML), der Mouse and Joachim for confirming
that my SPARCstation is likely to be able to boot from its
Zip drive.

It's time for me to create a Zip disk that my SPARCstation
can boot from. Can I use a PC running NetBSD/i386 to produce
this or am I likely to come up against byte-ordering issues?
Even if I can't do a proper install this way, I would like
to at least boot a kernel with a view to testing a 10baseT
transceiver that arrived yesterday.

I'm also wondering whether to install 1.5.3 or 1.6, so I'd
welcome people's thoughts or observations.
