It's been a long time since I dealt with SunOS 3.x, but I think the
remarks about ndboot are probably correct.

I do have some Sun-3 hardware I could dig out (at least one -3/260 and
at least one -3/60; surely at least one among them still works); if you
don't mind giving me access to the tapes' contents, I can have a stab
at dredging stuff out of my memory and, if I succeed, describe what I
had to do.  I don't think I still have any copies of SunOS 3 anywhere,
or I'd have a stab at it immediately.
