I have made some progress since I sent this message.
installboot -v -o timeout=5 /dev/rwd0d /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv2

...and now the primary bootstrap seems to load. However it can't see /boot:
NetBSD/i386 ffsv2 Primary Bootstrap
Boot failed (errno 2): Can't open /boot
I can mount the filesystem on /dev/rwd0a by booting from the install CD and running a shell, and have verified that /boot and /netbsd both exist.
I have googled around but so far have not found the reason for this. Any suggestions would be welcome.
