Re: bootloader issue
That problem was the one that David's fix covered. The fix was tested to
the point that we knew it unblocked the install, but we never got to the
point where we could test the actual bootloader until now.
With regard to loadbsd -- what's the full command line you're using?
According to docs Frank Lukas sent me, the -a option just loads to
multi-user mode. I haven't tried it yet, but I assume you'll need to
somehow specify that the root filesystem should be loaded from the hard
The loadbsd method sounds like a good workaround, but it would be great if

that might help.
Just FYI, I've replied to the PR:

I installed NetBSD 4 (base, etc and comp) installation sets without kernel
(Gemdos 8+3 file name restriction messes up it's name and I'm using
to launch NetBSD kernel from TOS). I was able to boot up system by using
loadbsd.ttp with -a flag.
I'm wondering if there's still following problem?
Could it be so simple issue that bootloader does not find kernel ?
