Thanks, David.

My adaptec scsi adapter says S93E and S96H are the firmware of
the disks. Searching the string "DDYS-T36950N" in the NetBSD
mailing lists, I found a lot of users with these disks and both
firmware versions. ALL THESE are disks with sizes like my
second disk.

I meant this: (I like simmetric disks)(after install 1.6 in sd0)
a) run /bin/sh from the sysinst CD
b) mount /dev/sd0a
c) cd /mnt/etc
d) cat /etc/disktab >> disktab    # The "mydisk" entry

Then, when the machine restarts
disklabel -r -w sd1 mydisk
newfs all partitions of sd1
Do you know to format my scsi disk in order to
have the original size?

Thanks a lot
