Yet another stumbling bock!

I have tried the installboot command you recommended but I get the error:

installboot: Invalid machine `evbarm' from uname()

So I need to also specify a machine type for installboot to use but none of its machine options are (32 bit) ARM platforms so I don't know which one might work the best, if any work at all?

On top of that, there is no /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv2 file. /usr/mdec contains a bootimx23 and a bootmini2440 file so I could try one of those instead.

I know it is possible to get NetBSD installed on the BPi HD as someone in #netbsd has done it but he was unwilling to tell me exactly how he achieved it. Someone else on the port-arm list has had success with this too. I've asked him for details yesterday but I'm still waiting for a response.
