Default post-install green text w/o shell

Hello, I just tried to switch to NetBSD from Linux with the belief that this OS is much more heavily documented and more "correct" in some ways.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any reference to the part where the user reboots immediately after an install, the text turns green, and w/o a user name or password required a 'db>' prompt shows. I can't enter any commands beyond sh as far as I can tell. And sh does nothing it would seem. I'm really lost; any help?

So far I haven't read of another person with this problem. PCBSD works when I installed on this computer. I'm trying to install NetBSD 4.0 on an old Sony notebook. I have basic familiarity with Linux but I have only used FreeBSD for about a month a year ago.
