NetBSD 1.5 install on Sun Sparcstation-2. (sorry, machine is elsewhere.)
Using sysinst to install NetBSD 1.5, I opted to customise a standard
partition table, using MB as my unit of measure.

When I had finished it complained that two partitions overlapped when
(based on the output on my screen) they clearly did not.

Perhaps there was an overlap on the cylinder or sector counts?
Repeat as above.  Sorry I don't have exact details, but unless you've
got the exact same disk it would probably be hard to repeat.
Re-partitioning from scratch with different sizes fixed the problem.
