Hi !

I'm trying to boot my VaxServer3100 from tape to install
I dd'ed the miniroot.fs to a TK50 tape on an Ultrix machine
and tried to boot the Vax with 
>>> boot MUA500

then there is a lot of tape-action and i get to some kind of 

>>NetBSD/vax boot [May 7 1999 06:49:43] <<
>> Press any key to abort autoboot 0
when i enter 
> boot netbsd -a
i get
Command failed: Unknown error: code 32768037

Any ideas what i'm doing wrong ?

TIA, Jan.

PS: The tape is an internal TZ30, not a real TK50.
