NetBSD rod 1.5.3 NetBSD 1.5.3 (GENERIC) #34: Mon Jul 1 21:36:06 CEST 2002 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
When you want to have access to your NetBSD Box via serial console and select 'serial bootblock' during the installation, you have to modify /etc/ttys manualy for a successful serial access.
Install with 'serial bootblock' and reboot the machine. When the Box is booted you can't login.
Change sysinst to do something like the following commands, when a serial bootblock is selected. It would be nice if this is added before the 1.6 release :)
# cd /mnt/etc/
# ed ttys
