Using sysinst to add additional distribution sets?

I've previously done a minimal install, and now I want to add the "man.tgz" distribution set. This is on a qemu virtual system, so I simply used vndconfig to access the "system disk" and copied man.tgz onto it.

I then booted the target VM, and ran sysinst. On the main menu, I selected item "(c) Re-install sets or install additional sets" and on the subsequent "Do you really want to ..." I answered Yes. However, even though NetBSD is running from a "virtual hard drive", sysinst reports "I can not find any hard disks for use by NetBSD. You will be returned to the original menu."

I get the same error if I select item "(b) Upgrade NetBSD on a hard disk".

Is this supposed to work? If yes, what am I doing wrong? (And if No, how is one expected to add more sets after an initial install?)
