Yep, it drops to the console monitor

Well, this is one reason
The other reason on my system was, that the filesystem sd0g is not on
a cylinder boundary.
The sysinst stops with an error after making the filesystems. I made the
whole installation by hand. (on RZ25)

Last weekend i try an other HD (RZ26). The sysinst tool works very fine
an the system is very stable - no crashes.
On my old system (RZ25) i can't fsck the sd0g filesystem, but now i can!! :-)

This effect should be an indicator for, that the filesystem of netBSD
should be correct at a cylinder/sector boundary.

nice VAXing
