      This problem is most likely caused by "option COMPAT_386BSD_MBRPART".
 At one point, 386BSD, FreeBSD, and NetBSD all used the same MBR type
 and same file systems.  However, that has long since changed.  At some
 point, NetBSD changed to a different MBR type but had an option to be
 able to use the original type.  The option has been disabled by default
 for NetBSD 5.0 and newer.  This should solve the problem.  If you're
 willing to try again and confirm this, that would be great.  But, if
 not, that is understandable.
