Ick...  Looks bad.  I'll try to recreate.  What kernel are you using?
/pub/dist/netbsd from kitten?  What are the major and minor numbers on
your serial devices?

Probably not.  You're dealing with a distribution that hasn't been
"released" and that we're working on improving (it *is* better than
what we had before, I think, but it has a long way to go).  This
will eventually be alpha-3 or beta-1.

You should be able to uncheck the Auto-size RAM button, enter the size
of RAM, click OK, save preferences, quit, and restart the booter.  If
it doesn't work in booter 1.0, it works in 1.1 ;-)  I guess I'll go
ahead and put that up for ftp since I haven't heard any reports from
my testers...

That would not cause a kernel trap.
