I try to install NetBSD-current / i386 from a secondary disk.
I boot from a boot.iso I downloaded from the autobuilder's snapshot.
The sets are on a ext2 partition, which I can manually mount
as /dev/wd1e.

When sysinst asks for the sets, where they are, I can either
select "unmounted fs" or "local directory" depending on whether
it is already mounted or not. Then sysinst always says:

Release set /mnt2/i386/binary/sets/kern-GENERIC.tgz does not exist.

A ls /mnt2/i386/binary/sets/ shows me all required sets are in place.
