NetBSD 1.5 on Sun Sparcstation-2, type 4 keyboard. (sorry, machine is elsewhere.)
When using "sysinst" to install NetBSD, cursor keys do not work
to navigate menus.  This is particularily a problem when specifying
the timezone, when you can only page up and down, and cannot get
to all menu options.
Install NetBSD 1.5 using sysinst on a Sun with a type 4 keyboard.
Obvious work-arounds are to use old installer, or fix the timezone
after install.
