NFS install writability on Netra t1 105



Hi,

I'm trying to install FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE on a Netra t1 105 over the
network (the machine has no CD-ROM).  I've set up RARP, TFTP, DHCP and
NFS servers, and get to the point that FreeBSD is booting from the
NFS-mounted installation CD.  The NFS server is Mac OS X Server 10.4.3.

It seems to expect that some things are writable when they're not,
however:

Trying to mount root from nfs:

FreeBSD/sparc64 (Amnesiac) (ttyu0)

login: Jan  3 01:21:49  getty[397]: open /dev/ttyv2: No such file or directory

At this point I tried logging in as root and running sysinstall, which
barfs trying to write various files or access the network.

I imagine I'm doing something wrong, but I can't see what.  Any advice
would be appreciated.

Thanks,
