NetBSD-1.0 had problems with ADB (the keyboard interface, among other
things). There were a couple of workarounds to the problem, but the real
fix is to use a more current snapshot.
Installer problems can be helped by doing a "Get Info" on the installer
program and setting the memory size up to 2000 or more.
It's probably not worth going out and getting a 1.1_ALPHA snapshot at
this point; the 1.1 release is nearly upon us. I'd advise waiting for
that to come out.
