To diskless boot over the network, you have to do something like this:
Kernel patch (against
2.1.99). Updated 12/5/98
SYS_UBOOT NetBSD network bootloader
rbootd - NetBSD remote boot daemon,
hacked to work under Linux
genaout.c - quick hack to generate a.out
headers. Combined with objcopy you can use this to turn ELF kernel
images into something that the NetBSD booter understands.
Make sure that your server machine has rpc.bootparamd, rbootd, rarp and
Create a directory /usr/mdec/rbootd and put SYS_UBOOT in it.
Add the client machine to the RARP and bootparams tables on the server.
Create a directory /tftpboot/<client>, make it NFS exported and put
the compressed kernel image there (call it "netbsd.gz")
