OK, a little update on my previous post:

(To recap: I'm using the Oct-23 1.2 TK50 files)

The 1.2_ALPHA kernel on the install miniroot reports the correct info 
about my controller and disk when booting.

The install miniroot obviously has no gennetbsd kernel, it's called 
netbsd. I've updated the FAQ to reflect this, but isn't gennetbsd really 
a better name for this kernel?

The kernel boots fine until it asks for the root device to mount. I've 
tried using both raN* and raNb (where N is the disk unit number) without 
luck. The kernel panics with the same message as Thomas S. Traylor 
reported earlier:

root device? ra0*
