It's actually dead easy to get it going via MOP, especially if you
already have NetBSD-current around. NetBSD-current comes with mopd,
otherwise you have to download it. This takes the place of the
first-stage rarp/tftp on Suns. After that, it boots just like a
Sun; the second-stage bootstrap grabs a kernel via nfs, runs it,
and the kernel rarps for its own address again, does the bootparamd
thing, and you're off and running.
