  | It sounds like you were running sysinst on the system you wanted to fix,
  | not from some (virtual) install media.  I could imagine that causing a
  | problem: sysinst shouldn't be installing into its own (ramdisk)
  | filesystem, it should be preparing (or fixing) a NetBSD installation on
  | a target drive.  When I've used sysinst for repairs, I've run it from
  | the CD-ROM or usb key, not from the NetBSD system I wanted to fix.

If it is limited like that, why does it get installed in /usr/sbin ?
Why not only have it on install media, and not actually installed itself?
