In sysinst, when you specify incorrect values (too small, not enough inodes for 
pkgsrc, etc.) for your / partition and use the rest of the space for another 
partition in "Set sizes of the NetBSD partitions"; and later come back to that 
step (from the start) to correct the values (and still use the remaining space 
for another partition), the partitionning tool gives you values (remaining 
space, etc.) that seem correct, but when you reach the disklabel step, it 
fails, saying that the disklabel goes beyond the boundaries of the disk.
Install NetBSD using sysinst, specify a too small size for set extractions 
(i.e. 100MB) on your /, use the rest for /home (for example), extract the sets, 
go back to the starting point, and try to disklabel the disk again with a 
bigger value for / and the rest of the space for /home.
Interrupt (^C) the disklabel instead of pressing enter, and then logout from 
the utility shell just obtained. From that point the process of growing the / 
and allocating the rest of the space to another partition can be done without
