I'm going to assume you have a network connection. If so, you can
pull down any 1.6 binary sets you need. Install and boot into the 1.6
kernel before you unpack the binary sets. Make sure you take special
care when unpacking etc.tgz, of course. This is taken from the NetBSD
Guide as an example on how to unpack sets,
See this link on how to approach upgrading etc.
Remember, the docs on www.netbsd.org have a wealth of information.
