System: NetBSD 1.5F NetBSD 1.5F (CHAMOMILE) #3: Tue Oct 24 00:30:50 EDT 2000 i386

	the next68k bootloader frequently times out while loading the
kernel over NFS.  lossage seems very correlated w/ other traffic on the
segment: the load will usually succeed on an idle segment, but heavy use
will almost guarantee a timeout.
	boot a next68k box on a busy ethernet.
	no idea, this is mostly a reminder for me to look at it later.

the bootloader now retransmits as necessary, which works around the 
real problem and is a good idea in general anyway.
