Sorry, I gave you incomplete information.  I can use 'multiboot' to load
the netbsd from any kind of fs, but it makes no difference:  'boot' then
causes the machine to reboot instantly.  The same applies to aout:  I
can aout load from any fs, but then 'boot' make the machine hang.  The
type of fs makes no difference.

I can still 'chainload +1' or 'linux' successfully.

All of the above applies to the latest grub2 from cvs with your most
recent ufs and aout patches applied.

in this case, the ufs driver should be ok.

btw, do you remember to apply the multiboot patch ? you can also make
a qemu image for me to test.

Aha!  I forgot the multiboot patch :o(  Now I can multiboot netbsd from
any filesystem and it 'just works'.  Most excellent, thank you!

Sadly, 'aout /boot/loader' still hangs when I type 'boot'.  The loader
is obviously probing the floppy drive because I can hear it seeking just
like it does when the machine reboots.  This is not what happens when
/boot/loader is working normally -- it should immediately load the kernel
from the hard disk with no additional hardware probing.

Let me know if I can give you any more info.
