The install notes mention editing /etc/rc.conf - at this stage your
/etc/fstab should have a few entries in it, including one for your root
filesystem which should look like:

	/dev/rz3a / ffs rw 1 1

Typing "mount -u /" and "mount /usr" should then allow you to write
to these filesystems.  Unless you did something different, you'll be
in a bourne shell, so type "TERM=<whatever>", "export TERM" and "vi
/etc/rc.conf" and you should be right.  These details are spread around
in http://www.NetBSD.ORG/Documentation/misc/index.html.
