The final step of sysboot-14 does not rename one of netbsd.GENERIC
or the SCSI3 version to plain netbsd, causing the disk to be unbootable.
At the end of the install, a message is give that "it failed basic
samity check" or something like that. This must have been the problem!
have it mv one of the kernels to "netbsd". Don't know how you
can tell which one. Note: I was using the 01234 numbering, not
31204. I also installed it on sd1, and then edited /mnt/etc/fstab
and changed sd1 to sd0, then prwered the system down, changed the
jumper on the scsi drive from 1 to 0 and rebooted.
Things were eventually ok after I got in there and mv'ed the netbsd.GENERIC
