	(NetBSD/sparc 1.5.2)
	I'm trying to boot 1.5.2 on a Sparcstation 5 from an Emulex-style
	8mm tape drive.  I dd'ed tapefile1 and tapefile2 and then the
	.tgz sets onto the (non-rewinding) tape dev and rewound and
	tried to boot with "boot tape".
	It is going for a while, printing nothing and then prints
		OBP version 3, revision 2.15 (plugin rev 2)
		Watchdog Reset, Rebooting.
	at which point it resets the machine.
	I've tried it now with several tapes (in case one was broken)
	and it's always the same behaviour.

	See above.

Is this problem still current? On the one hand, it's an obscure port issue,
which makes it likely that it is; on the other hand, it's *very *old...

feedback bounced -- anyone else know about this?
