A1) Any other partitions for NetBSD?
A2) You're sure you used NBR\7 for the root partition and NBS\1 for the

I can try to reproduce this on a SCSI MO drive using your partition layout,
but of course I need to know exactly what you're done - that is, whether
you told it to prepare other partitions too, etc.
