It seems that you have overwritten the first sector in your NetBSD
root partition. Error code 3 from the bootselect code means that
the first code of the partition you wanted to boot did not contain
a valid bootsector.

Could you also mail the output of 'fdisk wd0', to see what your MBR
looks like?
