We got the path working now too! But of course something else goes wrong.
This is the output we get on the vax:
>> NetBSD/vax boot [Aug 13 1999 20:18:28] <<
>> Press any key to abort autoboot 5
> boot netbsd
Trying BOOTP
Using IP address:
myip:  (, gateip:, mask:
root addr= path=/export/vaxclient/root

    PC = 00000001

So the files are ok, but probably we are missing something.

/export/vaxclient/root containes files from: base.tgz, kern.tgz, comp.tgz
and etc.tgz also the file extracted from netbsd.ram.gz
We do have some bad links that point to place that do not excist on my box.
Maybe something that has to do with NetBSD / RedHat?

/etc/exports looks like this:
/export/vaxclient/root   vaxclient(rw,no_root_squash)

What steps can we take to get to the final part of the netboot? (the next
part will be the final right?)
