Please explain in much more detail what you are trying to do and how.
I have no idea from your above message, you did not even mention the
architecture/machine you are trying to install and what install medium
you are trying to use and which image you downloaded.

To add to the confusion things like /dev/dk2s4 do not exist on NetBSD
usually, and it is unclear if you are doing the installation
preparations on some other system or if that is a typo.
