System: NetBSD mofo 1.6M NetBSD 1.6M (MOFO) #1: Thu Jan 23 18:33:53 EST 2003 grant@mofo:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/MOFO i386
When installing from a CDROM, sysinst does not wait long enough for
the CD to be mounted and accessible.
On a number of i386 systems, I had to retry 3-4 times for sysinst to
be convinced that the sets really were on the CD.
It is almost certainly a drive spin-up time problem, but shouldn't
the mount block while waiting for the device to be available?
This problem also exists in 1.6.1_RC1.
Choose to install from CDROM with sysinst.
