I had some problems with OpenBSD 2.2 booting over the net and an NFS root.
You need ALL of tftpd, rarpd, bootpd AND rpc.bootparamd setup correctly to get
it to boot, and you can log in. (On my DS 5000/25 at any rate).  But device
special
files don't seem to work properly.  ls > /dev/null just hangs the system.
I've tried with HP-UX, and Digital UNIX NFS servers, same result.  In the end
I just hooked the disk up to a linux box and dd'ed the simpleroot image
to disk.

Hello,

I testet my DECstation 5000/240 with PMAG-E 3D accelerator with OpenBSD
without success. I stopped while netbooting from my linux nfs server.
If you get a running kernel, I would be very interested. My customer
asked me to follow the OpenBSD path so I have no time/money to roast
a linux kernel...

Thanx,
  Andreas Heilwagen.
