I'm attempting to install and get running NetBSD 1.2 on the d partition
of my SS1. The system boots fine then right after all the probing of
devices it locks tighter than a drum. Has anyone tried installing
the system on a different partition just for sanity sake..

Here is the pertinent info:

Type  'go' to resume
Type  help  for more information
ok boot sd(,,3)/netbsd -sw
Booting from: sd(0,0,3)/netbsd -sw

Then the system is hung.. Sending a tip break doesn't even get it

Any ideas..
