Architecture: i386

NetBSD 1.6Q (GENERIC) #1: Tue Apr  8 12:30:48 CDT 2003
NetBSD 1.6R (GENERIC) #6: Sun Apr 13 01:44:31 CDT 2003
Sysinst for these two releases coredumps when the request to write
a disklabel is responded to. This happens with every attempt to
install NetBSD regardless of harddrive tried and partitioning for
a dedicated drive install (didn't try a non-dedicated install),
including the default partitioning. Bios settings, etc. appeared to
have no effect.

Build NetBSD -current. Cut install cd, boot cd, follow install menus
until the request to write a disklabel. Sysinst coredumps at that point.

 sysinst for NetBSD 1.6Q &  1.6R fails when writing disklabel
