Whoo Hoo! It works! I made an 11MB ffs image, did "fdisk" (no 
disklabel), did "installboot", copied in "/boot" and "/netbsd.gz", and 
installed it into the CDROM the usual way, adding "-hard-disk-boot" to 
${MKISOFS_OPTION}. "ls" from the bootloader works, and "boot 
hd0e:netbsd.gz" boots into the installer.

I used a "vnd". I'll have to look at how to do it the new way.

Seems like the way to go?
