I have a Frankensteined NetBSD with grub so I can remotely boot NetBSD,

And someone has also changed the installer so it's much less useful to
me. I used to be able to use it when I screwed up the bootloader,
stopping it and then telling it to boot off of hd0:/netbsd or something.
Now I don't seem to have that option.
Others have commented on the grub issues, but as for the new
installer boot menu - what happens if you select the 'Drop to boot
prompt' option - can you then enter 'boot hd0:' ?
There's no delay and it immediately boots off of cd0:
