5.1_RC1 binaries have been ready, so I've built and put
5.1_RC1 based NetBSD/cobalt restorecd:
ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/arch/cobalt/restore-cd/5.1_RC1/

No particular changes restorecd installation procedure itself.
Briefly tested on Qube 2 with an old ThinkPad as i386 server.

NetBSD/cobalt 5.1_RC2 restorecd

Now 5.1_RC2 binaries seem ready on ftp.NetBSD.org,
so as usual I've built and put 5.1_RC2 based NetBSD/cobalt restorecd:
ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/arch/cobalt/restore-cd/5.1_RC2/

Note obsolete 5.1_RC1 based restorecd has been removed.

See also "Restore CD Howto" for details:
http://www.NetBSD.org/ports/cobalt/restorecd-howto.html

Generic updates/fixes on 5.1_RC2 can be found here:
http://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-5.1_RC2/CHANGES-5.1
(check entries between 5.1_RC1 and 5.1_RC2; not so many)

I also take video "Install NetBSD/cobalt 5.1_RC2 using restorecd":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTSrbkACU8k
It just takes ~10 minites ;-)

If you see any problem, please report here or via send-pr(1).
