NetBSD cannot install on systems where no primary partitions are available anymore. Laptops are a major concern, as often there's already a primary suspend-to-disk partition, as well as 1 or 2 other OS's not supporting extended partition install.
Install NetBSD 1.6 / i386 on a system that has no primary partitions available, but plenty of extended partition space available.
