Yes, that worked for me too.  Thanks!  I was able to boot up and go
multi-user using rom(0,0)netbsd and my PIO-only kernel.

It did stop to ask me for a root device, swap device etc. and initially
started single-user.  I know how to hardwire the root device in the
kernel there any way to fake things so that "book dka000"
will try to load from rom(0,0) instead of sd(0,0)?
