I am trying to install Netbsd on the mac. I am new at this, and am
embarassed to ask the following question. I have tried to convert
the base11 and netbsd11 files and keep getting the message below.
I have tried every file conversion program possible to put the files
in the correct format for the installer but keep getting the message
below. I have used stuffit expander, and Macbinary II+. I know its
probably something simple, does anyone know what the problem
may be??

>To install for the first time:
        * Choose Install from the file menu and install at least the base
          package.  Any other packages may be installed now, as well.
        * Choose Build Devices from the file menu.
        * Boot BSD into single-user mode and follow the INSTALL instructions.
