	I fell victim to failing to set binary on kermit, so the 'short
read' is gone. However, after copying the new boot proggie onto dka0:sd0a,
I tried doing a 'b /3 dka0' and a 'rom()/netbsd'. All I got was this:

>>> b 3 dka0


howto 0x3, bdev 0x2a, booting...done. (33180+22308)

: rom()/netbsd

83 BOOT SYS <---------- what is causing this?     

{same boot message as above}

: /netbsd  <------ the boot program put this in on its own

sdopen: {yada,yada,yada, 48's of death, etc}

	What causes the system to say 'to hell with you, I'm rebooting and
using the alleged mangled code and AAAAAARGHH'? Is there a boot program
that does not used this alleged mangled code?
