Subject: Installing Boot record?

I'm installing an i386 version of NetBSD 1.3_ALPHA.
I've chosen the "install" option presented to me after
booting up from the installation floppy. I've copied
the kernel to /dev/wd0a. For some reason, I'm
getting the "Boot record not found on IDE-0" message
at start up. Can someone enlighten me on how to install
a boot record ? I got an "installing boot record on wd0"
message during the installation procedure, but somehow
still cannot boot properly from harddisk after reboot.
Is there a separate installation note for 1.3_ALPHA ? (I've read
the 1.2 installation note but don't find anything applicable to
installing boot record.)
