You didn't used to be able to swap to vnd's at all, but I _think_ that was
fixed (check out the devices file in conf, or maybe the devices.i386).  But
the most important thing is to build a kernel with the following line:

config netbsd root on sd0 swap on sd0 and vnd0

(or whatever ... might be "vn0").
