Hi, folks,

	Well, thanks to more help from Emanuel, I got a little farther. Turns out
that the error I was getting was popping up because 1.4 does not,
apparently, like the graphics console (QDSS board set). The error vanished
the moment I pulled said set.

	However, Emanuel says he doesn't know where to go from the boot prompt.
What I have is the NetBSD banner, and it just sits there until I press a
key to abort the autoboot. At that point, I'm rewarded with a single
chevron prompt.

	Where do I go from there? The 'Nboot' and : prompt referenced in the FAQ
on Ragge's machine ( never appears, and the one command
that appears to be useful is 'boot.' I've tried a couple of variants, but
no joy just yet.

	While waiting for a response, I'm going to do as Emanuel suggested and try
booting the 1.3.2 tape.

	Thanks in advance.
