I hadn't heard any more news about this thread, so I thought I would
give this a try. I've made a CD .iso image according to the instructions
at http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/bootcd.html. The cd I made
with the image will not boot my VS904k however. I tried it on a
VS3100/M76 and it does boot. Do I also need to get different bootblocks
from somewhere? I thought I remembered something about this on the list,
but now I can't find the post.
