i tried every single option on 2 different machines, one of which
has 5.1 installed.
the procedure is this:
1. downloaded i386 iso and install img from netbsd.org ftp.
2. i. dd the iso to the stick with bs=1m. that one gives me this:
i'm not sure what more exactly except the command itself with the output:
# dd if=NetBSD-6.0_RC1-i386-install.img of=/dev/disk2s2 bs=1m
512+0 records in
512+0 records out

it's getting to be a bit of a pain. something that should take about 15
min total including downloading the image is taking days now...
this is getting more interesting by the minute. so i was writing to a
partition of the stick. i just figured that out. ok. stupid.
anyway now when the thing boots of the stick it stops with: hd0a:netbsd:
No such file or directory.
same for netbsd.gz onetbsd, netbsd.old, etc....
so what id did was i copied the NetBSD-6.0_RC2-i386-install.img.gz to
netbsd.gz and dd that to the stick. that got bypassed.
how do i copy the rc2 image to the stick so the damn thing can find it?
