Re: Is it possible to chroot and then install NetBSD to the boot drive

If the remote system is at all usable, you may be able to overlay a new
userland while it is running.  But this is tricky business if you don't
really understand all the details.  So I'd recommend:

  make an image copy of the remote system on a local system and practice

  read and throroughly understand the scripts is
  pkgsrc/sysutils/etcmanage (and also sysupdate which is similar in
  intent but different)

  find a hosting place that will let you boot a cd image/etc.  your
  situation does not sound robust
