 It works fine with a network install (different architecture and branch,
 but you probably get the idea):
  The following are the http site, directory, user, and password that will be
  used.  If "user" is "ftp", then the password is not needed.

  b: Base directory                      pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/latest
  c: Binary set directory                /sparc64/binary/sets
  d: Source set directory                /source/sets

 Not all install media come with all sets, for space reasons.
 What part of the documentation do you refer to?
 We can enhance the installer to ask for a different medium in this case,
 which also helps installing the debug sets.
