	pmax NetBSD-1.3.2 sysinst
System: netbsd 1.3.2 pmax

	sysinst will not install from CD-ROM.  Specifying the CD-ROM device
	as rzXc wins the message "cannot find installation sets kern.tgz and
	base.tgz on rzXc".  (X is, of course, the correct SCSI ID for the
	CD-ROM drive.)  I've only paraphrased the message here; unfortunately,
	I did not make an exact note of the error.
	Drive sysinst to the point where it gives you a menu of choices for
	installation method, which includes installation via FTP, via CD,
	and a number of others.  Select the CD installation method and then
	specify rzXc as your CD device.
	sysinst may be mis-issuing the mount command.  ???
