I've never tried 2.0.2 on my nada, so I can't help you with that.
However, the following should apply anyway.

The kernel I had sent over to Michael was a custom one. However, that
doesn't seem to be the issue here -- the entries for wdc{0,1},
atabus{0,1}, and wd* were identical to those in GENERIC. I just updated
my source tree and built a GENERIC kernel:

NetBSD 3.99.7 (GENERIC) #0: Thu Jul 28 17:46:01 EEST 2005

FYI the system boots just fine. You can get this kernel image from if you want to try it out

This is really disturbing... I built the above kernel (presumably) from
the exact same sources used to build the snapshot binaries, and using
vanilla conf files (i.e. standard GENERIC conf, no mk.conf or other
COPTS/CFLAGS changes, etc.) and the outcome is ok (at least for me). If
it also works for you, then this discrepancy doesn't make sense... Could
it be that the hpcsh binaries are built on some 64-bit machine and this
is an artifact of crossing the 32-64bit boundary?
