OK. So, it's an original iBook (not FireWire). Language of the machine is
irrelevant. The documentation, however, was written by a native English
speaker (i.e. me), so it may be confusing to non-native English speakers.
Please let me know how to correct it to make more sense.
Unfortunately, the 1.5.2 INSTALL notes are woefully out of date. I had
been hoping the 1.5.3 notes would be available by now, as they describe
installation better. If you are uncomfortable installing 1.5.3_RC2, you
should at least use the 1.5.3_RC2 install notes:
:)Am i misreading something written @ the installation guide?
:)It seems like the installer on my HDD tries to use all the disk
:)even though i have it partitioned into several parts..
That is true, if you use the "Install NetBSD" option in sysinst. If you
use the "Re-install sets" option, it will use your current partitions, but
you will need to perform some steps by hand (such as installing the
bootloader and creating /dev).

:)do i have to use pdisk and clear it as a HFS oriented one?
You will need to use pdisk to turn it into an A/UX Root partition.
:)if i do that
:)will the installer find this "another" space to install?
Only if it's A/UX Root.
