Default Installation programs

I would like to try NetBSD but I cannot find a description of the installation programs.

From the installation directory:
NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-bios-install.img.gz         06-Nov-2023 02:33  824M
NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-bios-install.img.gz.torrent 07-Nov-2023 14:10   32K

NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-install.img.gz              06-Nov-2023 02:29  825M
NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-install.img.gz.torrent      07-Nov-2023 14:10   32K

NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-live.img.gz                 06-Nov-2023 02:41  431M
NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64-live.img.gz.torrent         07-Nov-2023 14:10   34K

NetBSD-10.0_RC1-amd64.iso                         06-Nov-2023 02:26  594M
Starting from the bottom ......
  • The "*amd64.iso" is clear, an installation image to write to a CD/DVD.
  • The "torrent" and ".gz" stuff I understand.
  • "*amd64-live.img" is an image for a live system. I assume an image for a USB stick/pen.
  • "*amd64-install.img", an USB stick image
  • "*amd64-bios-install.img", another USB stick image
What is the difference between the last two images? When do I use "*install.img", and when "*amd64-bios-install"?
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
