hi all,

I am attempting to boot an Ultra 30.

I've grabbed a couple of files from the snapshots, with mixed
results. I also tried the 1.5 sparc64 bootable cd.

ok boot net
Boot device: /pci@1f,4000/network@1,1  File and args:
43a00 Fast Instruction Access MMU Miss

ok boot net
Boot device: /pci@1f,4000/network@1,1  File and args:

ok boot cdrom
Boot device: /pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/disk@6,0:f  File and args:

I imagine a newer kernel might do better, and I have 1.5S-3 from
sparc64/kernels, but no way of booting it :)

I'm happy to do testing/debugging if it will help being able to run NetBSD
on the Ultra 30.
