Wrong kernel filename lookup prevents netbsd to install clean from nfs.
1. Copy ISO CD content to nfs share
2. Perform a regular startup from iso cd on the workstation ou are going to 
install netbsd on, then when prompted for install media, choose "nfs".


The installer requires <nfspath>/i386/binary/sets/kernel-GENERIC.tgz, but 
<nfspath>/i386/binary/sets/kernel_generic.tgz is present instead.
Trick to continue intsallation is to do

ln -s kernel_generic.tgz kernel-GENERIC.tgz

on the nfs server
