        The 'max 16MB netboot' problem gave a different failure mode
        (the network interface just didn't work).
        I'm netbooting a 24MB 3100/m38 without problem here (its trying to
        build the 1.4.1 install sets as I type :)
        Hmm.. You vould try pulling some memory to see if that helps.
        What NetBSD version are you running?
