Yes that's what one has to do. I suppose you are refering to the hint
given in the NetBSD Cobalt FAQ:

http://www.de.netbsd.org/Ports/cobalt/faq.html#otherkernel

In the Cobalt firmware you can say:
bfd /boot/mykernel.gz

and the box will boot the file /boot/mykernel.gz

Thank you and Karsten for your replies,
