Ok I've been hacking on getting my soekris boxen running NetBSD via
pxebooting.  The only doc I've found on the net is in relation to
pxebooting --> mounting root via NFS.  Ideally i'd like to do
pxeboot-->install.  Has anyone here done something similiar.  Here's
the main doc i've been following:


I can get tftp to dole out the PXE image, but then I believe it
expects a NetBSD kernel and root filesystem to boot.  I am more
familiar with doing this on OpenBSD where they have a prebuild pxe
install image available.  Am I missing something obvious here, or
should I just go with NetBooting a base system then dd'ing it to my
Flash drive?
