Hmm, I tried that the first time, but I was getting the "no operating
system found" or equivalent bios message.  Re-running sysinst (after
fdisk'ing the drive again from dos) and installing NetBSD starting at
cylinder 1 fixed my problem.  The slight inconvenience being that I
had to figure out the NetBSD partition sizes with a calculator because
"cylinders" was my unit of choice :-(

This is the second HDD on the SCSI chain, the first is all DOS w/OSBS.
