After a fresh installation of 4.99.19 (10 May) on a SCSI drive (sd0) the
 system would not boot reporting no OS. I booted off hd0a:/netbsd from a
CD and ran:

cp /usr/mdec/boot /boot
installboot -v -o timeout=5 /dev/rsd0a /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1

as indicated in the installboot man page.

The computer still won't boot from the hard drive. What am I doing wrong?
