I am attempting to netboot my MIPS machine. I have bfs running, now i am
just looking for something to boot!
This is what i get on the serial console. Note that the machine is in
big endian mode.

now, from the instructions that Paul Antoine wrote about a year ago,
the correct command to boot would be
boot -f bfs()_filename_
ok, so here we go
>> boot -f bfs()coco
No server for coco
couldn't load bfs()coco
That is cool , as there is nothing in the directory called coco
but, i need a first stage loader, i believe, like the SASH that is
installed by RISC/OS. I have access to an SGI Webforce, but it does not
have any sash on the machine. I also cannot mount the IRIX install cd in
any other machine. The CD is not in CD9660 format, it appears.
So , i am looking for a little advice on getting to the next step. If anyone
has any ideas, please let me know!
