If someone makes an error entering the location of distribution sets, sysinst presents a menu with "Try again", "Give up" and "Ignore, continue anyway" choices. None of those is much useful, because at that point, one usually needs to return to the distribution media selection menu to correct the error.
try to install netbsd, select "Unmounted fs" as the distribution source, enter a wrong device name.
