I have some notes from a prior netbsd install on potential
improvements to the existing install scripts. I'll dump them below:

netbsd install script
Boot with loadbsd -Cbv netbsd-INSTALL (for serial port install)
specify wd0b as root, none as dump device

Your network interface might require explicit selection
of the type of network medium attached. Supported media:
Additional media type arguments (none)? [ep0] none  --> defaults to
ep0 which causes ERROR. Should be "none".

ftp ip --> Does a hostname work? No default providen?

Maybe we could add support for http?
ftp -o test http://example.com can fetch on ftp.
Can the ftp in the miniroot fetch http too?

Maybe add the fstab.pseudo step from below into the scripts.

netbsd after install steps
Boot with loadbsd -Cav (serial port still)
mkdir /kern
mkdir /proc
cat /usr/share/examples/fstab/fstab.pseudo >>/etc/fstab
useradd -m -s /bin/ksh -G wheel username
passwd username
echo "sshd=YES" >> rc.conf
/etc/rc.d/sshd start
Then ssh-copy-id so we don't need to do interactive ssh login more than once.

Boot with loadbsd -Aav (AGA display)

For the can't make keyb raw mode error, add this at /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Keyboard0"
        Driver "kbd"
        Option "Protocol" "wskbd"
        Option "Device" "/dev/wskbd0"
