You should check the output of mount in this case - it is probably already
mounted somewhere.

did, here's the output;
root_device on / type cd9660 (read-only, local)
tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (union, local)
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (local)
tmpfs on /var type tmpfs (local)
tmpfs on /etc type tmpfs (union, local)

as a check for hardware problems, i installed ubuntu 14.04 followed
by openbsd 5.4, both installed quite successfully and smoothly.
post that, retried installing netbsd 6.1.4, and dang, it failed at
exactly the same point.

any advice, suggestions and/or pointers to a solution would be more
than welcome.
