I figured some files would be missing, but apparently I'm missing all
the installer files too. Ooooops. :)

nativehd (we need a better name) installs off the net. (Not to be
confused with the netinst cdrom which ... well ... is a cdrom.) cdrom
expects a real cdrom. hd-media is just like cdrom only works with an iso
file (usb, bootstrapping from another os, that sort of thing).

Thanks for finding my mistake,
