cannot give because cannot install netbsd


I have a PC i386 Pentium 150.
I cannot install Netbsd because after installation I get an error 
in partition tables (Partition Magic). Maybe the problem is that I 
try to install Netbsd on a second hard drive. The hard drive has the following 
parameters: cyls=969, h=128, sec=43.
I didn't install Netbsd after 1024 cylinder. I tried the whole disk,
it didn't work, then I tried to install it partially after 800 MB, it
didn't work either. What's wrong? I use FreeBSD and I can install 
it wherever I want.

The reason I try to install Netbsd is that I'd like to compare it with
FreeBSD. So far I know what's my first discovery.

To install again

I don't know
