I am trying to install NetBSD-current 2008-17-04 (lasted binary snapshot 
available) on my Sun Blade 150 computer. This is the sparc64 port.

I am using a Sun Type-6 USB keyboard.
Contratry to older Sun machines, the Sun Blade 150 does not have a Keyboard 
DIN-8 port, so only USB keyboards can be used.

After booting the NetBSD cdrom, the keyboard does not work.
I am stuck when the line "Terminal type (just hit ENTER for 'sun'):" appear, 
since I cannot type anything.
Boot a Sun Blade 150 with a Type-6 USB keyboard.
Type Stop-A to enter the OpenBootPROM.
Insert the NetBSD-current 2008-18-04 sparc64 cdrom in the cdrom drive.
Type "boot cdrom" in the OpenBoot PROM.
The kernel is now booting.
Keyboard is not supported.
