RB532 progress

This weekend I spent writing driver for IDT RC32434 on-board Ethernet adapter. Weird hobby, isn't it? Writing NIC drivers is new to me so I shared my time between reading if_XX sources, reading IDT specs and writing my own code. Task turned out easier then it appeared and 15 minutes ago I managed to mount root over NFS using kr0 interface. Time to get some beer and celebrate!

Congratulation! I have a RB532A and like to install NetBSD or FreeBSD. Which bootloader are you using?
