It starts at block 237 (track one).

Ahm.. all partitions are "unused" (well, I never ran fdisk on this disk,
so..)  I guess running fdisk with right parameters will solve the problem.
(I see now that I _should_ have installed NetBSD on this disk using
sysinst, but as I have a live system on wd0 with all pkg stuff and
configuration done, I thought....)

Thanks for the hint, I'll see if I can tell fdisk to DTRT.
