Congraturation, you are baptized of NetBSD-1.6.1 :)
You have got good answers already, my procudere is (for an example);
1. install 3 binaries = kern-GENERIC.tgz, base.tgz and etc.tgz at first
2. complete sysinst method and reboot
3. boot NetBSD and login: root
4. mkdir 161
5. cd 161
6. ftp ftp.netbsd.org (or mirror site) "ftp" is ready to use already
get comp.tgz (and others which you need)
7. cd / (don't forget this)
8. pax -zrpe -f /root/161/comp.tgz
pax -zrpe -f /root/161/man.tgz
pax -zrpe -f /root/161/xserver.tgz
Very simple and easy, isn't it? I've done this method more than
100 times (maybe) with no error.
If you don't like to do by 'hand', boot sysinst again and select;
c: Re-install sets or install additional sets
b: Custum installation (for comp.tgz and others including x*.tgz.
sysinst doesn't say 'Segmentation Fault - core dumped' anymore)
is a good way, of course.
