        It is impossible to boot NetBSD from the 2nd disk because
        the biosdisk_open() always sets the BTINFO_BOOTDISK property.
        Unfortunately it is called from module_open() for the 1st disk and
        therefore the loaded kernel believes the boot disk to be hd0.
        Try "boot hd1a:netbsd".
        Yes, please ...
