[rescue] Need help in booting Sun 2/50

If the 3/60 has a 3.0 boot ROM it can boot from a SCSI CDROM "b sd(0,30,4)" and
install SunOS on a SCSI disk drive. It is quicker and much more reliable
than installing from tapes. Once the 3/60 is running you can setup a Sun-2
boot environment and netboot the 2/50.

Don't forget to configure ndbootd on the 3/60 or the 2/50 will not boot.
Most version of Linux and NetBSD include ndbootd so you don't have to use
the 3/60 as a server.
