Alter your /etc/fstab so that wd0 and wd1 are fsck'ed *sequentially*,
instead of in parallel.  Watch source-changes for fixes to the wd.c
driver. :)  Another thing to try is to alter your kernel's
configuration so that it swaps on both drives:

config netbsd root on wd0 swaps on wd0 and wd1

I don't know if any of those work, I only have one drive.  They're
just things that I've seen suggested.
