   I've already done/tried everything that you mentioned.  For network 
connectivity I used an Edimax-based 10baseT card.  I had no problems 
configuring the card (I kicked off an FTP based install from the MobilePro 
using one of the Internet ftp servers; NFS based attempts used a local 
i386 NetBSD NFS server).  To rule out networking issues I've gone to a 
local-storage based installation procedure (binary/sets on a CF in a 
PCMCIA adapter).  My target medium is a 512MB Sandisk CF card.

In all cases I'm able to get the installs kicked off OK (though sometimes 
after failures I have to newfs the target NetBSD fs using an i386 NetBSD 
system).  Typically the installation is aborted (and the system is kicked 
into the debugger) while newfs is running or while the base set is being 

Haven't you ever seen any "ISA IRQ 3 -> vrgiu0" or "panic: TLB out of
universe" messages pop up during your installation attempts?

Frustration is the key sentiment at this time.  The only things I can 
think of at the moment are to try to install 1.6.1 and/or to try to 
install the base system on another CF card.

Any other ideas or words or wisdom would be appreciated.
