Speaking of the NetBSD 2.0.x releases, the relevant fix was applied to
the netbsd-2-0 branch a couple of minutes ago and will appear in 2.0.3.
As far as ISO images are concerned, those are usually created for release
distributions only, so in the meantime you'll have to build your own.

On the other hand, the 2.1 release is just around the corner (which
includes the fix as well), and I concur with Matthias in 2.1 likely
being more worthwhile.
