I just realized, sysinst of NetBSD-1.4.2 can't handle large disks.  

I have a 17 gig hard-disk, and I was trying to install NetBSD in the last
10 gigs.  sysinst wouldn't let me do it.  It would let me specify the
sizes and offsets, but would just display nothing after I say OK.  I had
to then use fdisk and manually allocate the partition.  

It's probably a know problem, but I'm saying just in case ...  How come
nothing has been done so far abt it ?
