System: NetBSD rock 1.5ZC NetBSD 1.5ZC (GENERIC_LAPTOP) #0: Sun Apr 7 18:24:05 CEST 2002 firstname.lastname@example.org:/src/NetBSD-current/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC_LAPTOP i386
when trying the system installation (in my case, actually an upgrade)
of the above snapshot, installboot claimed that i386 was not a valid
architecture to install. This is a bit surprising for a i386 installation
upgrade some i386 machine using the 20020407 snapshot.
if this is an upgrade, accept the message by pressing ENTER.
sysinst will happily continue, and the old bootblock was new
enough to boot the 1.5ZC kernel (in my case).
