Ok - more precise - On my Decstation 5000/240 with R3000 support it
refuses to boot further than "This is a DECstation DS5000/2x0"
and on my '150 with R4000 support it boots but gives me
an "Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 00:00"
although it does a correct BOOTP request get a correct ip address.

Command line /boot command is

boot 3/tftp console=ttyS2 root=/dev/nfs 

as it was with pre2 (setenv boot - just turn on)
