What does your partition table look like?  Could you have accidently
set up wd0a as the linux /boot partition?  When the system boots,
it expects wd0a to contain the NetBSD / partition.  As an alternative,
perhaps you got wd0a set up correctly, but the disklabel claims it
is ext2fs instead of ffs?

Good luck,
