It works fine to just partition the disk as an HFS+ partition over 
firewire, and then install on that disk.   You might have to copy over 
a Potemkin installation so that you can choose the Erase and Install 
option in the installer, but I don't think so.

I wasn't able to get it to work if there was more than one partition on 
the disk - then it would do an install, but the install wouldn't boot.  
  Dunno why.

I've been running this configuration for ~4 months now, with no 
problems, and pkgsrc and a full NetBSD build both work just fine.
