That sounds like it might have been the problem.  I had created the ext2fs
partion on a 2.2.x linux box.

I got it to work by copying the partition from the original disk to the new
disk using Drive Image Pro from PowerQuest.  I then resized the partion with
Partition Magic (down to
15Mb), put the netbsd kernel in /boot/vmlinux.gz and that did it.
