[rescue] Netbsd install issues

After going through what appears to be a normal install from 1.6.1
cd/iso, my ss20-dual proc-256mg-quad ether-2 gig seagate system
complains bitterly that the instfs file system is full. 

I have goggled quite a bit and found the trick about using the custom
option so that a kernel is installed, but no luck using different hds
and install options. I have seen others on google that have this
problem, but so far can't find the solution.

Solaris 9 installs and runs fine. In Netbsd that much faster on this
system? I plan using it to monitor different network segments for my
students, using tcpdump, arpwatch, ethereal. 

Anybody care to recommend a book on TCP/IP? I can look at a snoop
readout and see what is going on, but I want to go deeper, (not the
engineer level).
