I have a problem installing NetBSD on my 5000/25. I have prepared a boot
(zip) disk using my NetBSD/i386 machine and the binary snapshot. 

It boots the kernel but then starts complaining it can not use /dev/console (I
made the /dev nodes using the MAKEDEV script in the pmax distribution). This
is followed by errors 22 on the executables (init ...) and a crach including
dump of the kernel.

I have probably done something wrong in the installation but I do not see
what. (well, I cheated a little in creating the disklabel but it can find the
files and it boots, so that should not stop it from working.)

Does anyone have ideas how i can correctly boot this system?
