 We need more details, as from the daily automatic test runs we know that
 i386 installs fine after an anita driven install, so there must be
 something special to your machine, the medium you are using to install,
 or your install selections.
 Did you try an update installation or a new install?
 Any previous partitions on the disk? Anything non-netbsd?
 Since you got it booting, can you show the output of "disklabel wd0",
 "fdisk wd0" and "dumpfs wd0a | head -10" please?
