I just got a 3/50 and wanted to get it up and running:

1. I read the installation howto about 10 times :)
2. got bootp, bootparamd, nfsd, mountd, etc all configured
3. I boot netboot, ip gets assigned, and it boots netbsd-rd
4. I get

device md0 (0xed00) not configured
root device: (i enter le0)
dump device: (i enter none)
file system: (i enter nfs)

I have the file "miniroot" in the root directory unzipped, I thought it
would try and load it but it doesn't.  Here is some things I have:

[illusion:~] # more /etc/bootparams
sun     root=illusion:/tftpboot/root \

[illusion:~] # ls -al /tftpboot/root/
total 12439
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         1024 Oct 27 22:24 .
drwxrwxrwx   4 root     root         1024 Oct 27 22:22 ..
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root      8388608 Oct 27 22:24 miniroot
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            9 Oct 27 22:22 netbsd -> netbsd-rd
-rwxrwxrwx   1 root     root       983596 May 30 22:31 netbsd-rd

[illusion:~] # cat /etc/exports

( is "sun" )

So its actually running netbsd-rd, but what is suppose to happen next?
This machine has a disk box but i am not sure if the disk even works, but
that shouldnt matter as we havent got their yet, I am still trying to
install over le0.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
