Currently, NetBSD/sandpoint requires the use of Motorola's DINK32 ROM to load over a serial port. This means that there is no way to boot from a local disk or PCI device.
Supported processor cards
- mobo sandpoint/X4 with MPC8240
- CPUmodule Altimus X3 with either MPC755 or MPC7410
Other PMCs should work, but may need minor adjustments or more substantial work to support additional functionality.

= Unsupported devices
- Built-in PS/2 keyboard & mouse
- Built-in parallel
- Built-in floppy
- Built-in IDE
Supported boot devices
Currently, the only way to boot the system is with the DINK32 ROM monitor's serial download or a JTAG device.
