You'll want to place the appropriate GENERIC32_IP3x kernel in /netbsd.
The easiest way is probably to netboot again, drop out of sysinst, and
do it manually. Or, you could just install again and force the correct
I don't know why the installer chose the wrong kernel. When you chose
the sets to install it had selected GENERIC32_IP2x? That is, you
