Gone.  The contents file needs to be updated.  It contained a new kernel
which has been superceded by netbsd-current.gz in the kernels directory
and a new installer that used a different storage method for dev numbers,
but sun-lamp doesn't have the old installer on it, as far as I know.

Ummm..  Not really.  run mkfs, extract the tar files...  It looks like
you might also want to "mkdir /root /mnt /kern"...  Also, I'm uploading
a new etc.tar.gz, so look for a copy of this dated after the time of this
