Is there a step-by-step description of installing NetBSD over Ethernet?
Here's what I'd like to do:

1.  Install the miniroot on a VS2000's RD54 from RX50's.
2.  Boot up the miniroot.
3.  FTP the rest of the files from another machine onto the RD54.

On most Unix-type boxes that I've used, configuring the Ethernet
requires a kernel build.  Is that necessary (or even possible)
with a miniroot on a VS2000?  Or is a VS2000's ethernet port already
built into the miniroot's kernel, and all I have to do is an ifconfig?
Gunnar's FAQ indicates that the DEQNA driver is in the miniroot
kernel, but it's not obvious to me if the VS2000's ethernet port is handled
by this.
