OK, I've now crossed this hurdle.  To do so required using the
RAMDISK kernel from the 20000610 snapshot; the 1.5 RAMDISK kernel
is most definately toast (i.e. does not work).  The newer
(20010113) snapshot does not even contain a RAMDISK kernel.

I also had to search around a bit to discover that the Sun-3/60
boot ROM requires you to disable parity on the SCSI bus before it
wants to deal with the drive (as in "boot from it").  That must
be a rather obvious candidate for an addition to the install

The kernel installed by the miniroot installer is the INSTALL
kernel, and that one doesn't have rnd(4) enabled.  This caused
ssh-keygen to not generate an RSA key, and sshd thus disabled
version 1 operation.  Not exactly ideal.

Thus, I'm now compiling a new kernel for my machine, to get
moving further along.
