Interesting. I've never done it via netbooting.

Also interesting. I've used sysinst on NetBSD/vax for the past
several releases, on many different machines, and have had no problems
whatsoever. What brokenness are you referring to? And how is it
possible that a sysinst problem can be architecture-specific? I can't
think of any reason it'd need to be.
