What were you using as the 'boot manager'?
How far does the boot sequence get, and what error message is shown?

Maybe you don't have appropriate boot code in sector 0 of the disk.
Under netbsd 'fdisk wd0' will display the mbr partition table and
(fdisk -u wd0) will let you edit it - and probably decode to write
in the netbsd mbr boot code.
