I have a diskless Sun 3/80 here (sun3x), attempting to boot NetBSD
1.3.2/sun3x's "netboot" installation image, but having a bit of trouble.

The 3/80 ( is booting off of a FreeBSD machine ( 
on the local LAN.  I might add, that I replaced its old NVRAM (due to dead
battery) with a new M48T02, and re-programmed the hostid, ethernet
address, boot dev, etc. 

I'm not too sure exactly what the "idprom: not found in monitor data" 
means, since I am new to Sun hardware. If anyone has a clue, please help
me out. Thanks in advance. 

Selftest Completed.

SUN LOGO  ROM Rev 3.0, 12MB memory installed, Serial #xxxxx.
SUN LOGO  Ethernet address is 8:0:20:xx:xx:xx, Host ID 42xxxxxx.
