4.2.4 NetBSD

GRUB can load NetBSD a.out and ELF directly, follow these steps:

  1. Set GRUB's root device with root (see root).
  2. Load the kernel with kernel (see kernel). You should append the ugly option --type=netbsd, if you want to load an ELF kernel, like this:
              grub> kernel --type=netbsd /netbsd-elf
         
  3. Run boot (see boot).

For now, however, GRUB doesn't allow you to pass kernel parameters, so it may be better to chain-load it instead. For more information, please see Chain-loading.
