I just got a brand new Dell Precision Workstation 340 Series (2.5Ghz,
512MB, 80GB drive).  Dell ships these things with Redhat if you choose to.
 I wiped off Redhat as soon as I got the machine and installed NetBSD 1.6
on it.  After I rebooted, I get:

Invalid partition table

And it doesnt boot up.  I've tried using 'normal bootblocks'
and 'serial bootblocks' but no difference; same error message.  I went
into the BIOS and made sure the hdd is the first boot device.  But that
didn't help, I can't explain this... I was so excited too.  This is a
brand new computer...has this happened to someone else?  Does anyone know
how to fix this?  I'd appreciate any help I can get.
