NetBSD 3.0_BETA NetBSD 3.0_BETA (GENERIC_LAPTOP) #0: Sat Aug 13 13:31:40 UTC 2005 email@example.com:/home/builds/ab/netbsd-3/i386/200508120000Z-obj/home/builds/ab/netbsd-3/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC_LAPTOP i386
when prompting for the root shell, sysinst says "The default is
/bin/csh...". It is unclear what "the default" means, because the first entry in the menu is /bin/sh, so if I just press Enter, I don't get /bin/csh, ant there is AFAIK no other way how such "default" may apply.
I also suggest to make /bin/ksh the first entry, as it is better for interactive use (it has filename completion and history file).
Delete the phrase "The default is
/bin/csh, but you may prefer another one." from src/distrib/utils/sysinst/msg.mi.en
