	NetBSD does have tcl/tk in the pkacages collection
	though install media may be a little tight (plus swap may not
	be available).

	Most porrts are looking towards sysinst, booted in a kernel with
	built in ramdisk, or miniroot.

	If you have a PC around you should try booting a NetBSD 1.3.2
	boot floppy to see the interface (you can easily bail before it
	actually starts doing anything :)

	NetBSD support iso9660 with rockridge extensions - if the hardware
	can boot a CD you should be able to put the boot program in
	the appropriate place then make it load everything else from the
	rest of the CD in '9660 format
