Hi Harald.

I tried your new kernel, using just your configuration (even r3000 cpu)

This was what I got:

KN05 V2.1k    (PC: 0xa002cab8, SP: 0xffffdeb0)

>>boot 3/tftp

-tftp boot(3), bootp.
-tftp load 875056+3472+97728

Found a REX compatible boot PROM
This DECStation is a DS5000/2x0 with 98304kB RAM
CPU is a R4400SC with 16kB I-Cache and 16kB D-Cache
Got the following for the console env. variable: s
Should set to serial console...
Will be using PROM console!
Moving Kernel Image from 80200000 to 80030000
Launching Kernel ...

Then I get a reset.
It looks like you got the CPU detection right!

I will apend the boot messages from the NetBSD1.3.2 kernel, which is running
on this machine currently.

Next week I want to try a kernel built for a r4x00 cpu. Or do you have
other suggestions?

Thanks a lot!
