NetBSD  3.99.5 NetBSD 3.99.5 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Jun  8 21:42:43 UTC 2005 sparc64
When running the latest greatest miniroot-based sysinst, everything goes great except the only way to delete text in the prompts (such as path to distribution sets) is ^U or ^H.  The backspace and delete keys on the keyboard don't work.

This is a sun5 keyboard, and going to a shell (from the utility menu) produces working delete/backspace keys.  Not sure why sysinst doesn't pick it up.
