When I typed "disklabel" it did show only one partition, marked with 'c'.
So, I simply chose next letters.

Now I made repartition, and my disk currently has wd0a as root, and wd0b as

After "installboot" and first try to boot the system, it stops, saying:

NetBSD/i386 lfsv2 Primary Bootstrap
Boot failed (errno 2): Can't open /boot

...but of course "boot" file is present on wd0a.

What now?
