NetBSD 1.6.2 on the IBM Thinkpad 760XL

This Thinkpad cannot boot from CD-Rom. (You don’t believe me? Press F1 while booting, enter your BIOS and have a look. It’s always better to verify. That’s why we use Open Source.) If you want to install NetBSD from CD-Rom, you should use the really smart "smart boot manager." Boot from the smart boot manager-floppy. It will lead you to a menu which allows you to boot the machine from CD-Rom.
