don't install the cvsup pkg it looks for input when installing. Another than that
just try to install the development pkg without gui from there let me know if you have
any trouble. What model is this laptop maybe it's not support.

It doesn't present a list of conflicts to you like FreeBSD? Chances are good that it's a NIC driver trying to grab resources that are already in use. I know that when I installed FreeBSD there were always like 16 conflicts and I just had to remove each of them from the kernel before it would boot. If you want I'll grab a netbsd bootdisk and see if I can't find it for you. I gotta get to work in a bit but I can do it after.

create a dos parition put dosboot.com(from the NETBSD-cd) and some install kernels into the same dir. Boot the kernels with dosboot.com.

If the GENERIC-install kernel doesn't work try TINY or LAPTOP

Also check in bios and make sure any 'fastboot' options are off and PNP should be
turned to off.

Good Luck :D
