This was the 9.2 amd64 cd linked on the netbsd.org front page.
The src sets should be on the distro cd, because the installer installs them=
when you select install src. Otherwise you=E2=80=99ll get an error. The d=
istro cd doesn=E2=80=99t say it=E2=80=99s binary only, and finding the src s=
ets was kind of tedious (still in the same basic place as years ago), but a n=
ew user might not be able to to figure it out.
This breaks your documentation and installer.
I get that it would be good to have a binary distro cd, but full distributio=
n cd image should be provided as well.
PS, the installer __still__ doesn=E2=80=99t properly partition and label dis=
ks (created a whole disk e partition, kernel can=E2=80=99t boot), but I=E2=80=
=99ve given up complaining about that. I put in some but reports many yea=
rs ago (version 5, 6, 7 maybe).
