Is there a way to install NetBSD over passive FTP?

read the manpage on ftp for netbsd. OpenBSD you can set and environment of FTPMODE to passive. I think FreeBSD has a FTP_PASSIVE_MODE environment, and im not sure on Net offhand.

I'm assuming you mean install NetBSD in IA-32 hardware. You need to download two floppy disk images and write them out then boot from them to get into sushi (the installer) it will let you ftp the rest.
