You need to add a menu entries by editing the partition data with
netbsd's fdisk.  Then you'll get a line "1: Netbsd" (or whatever you
put for the menu text for the partition) below the "Fn: Diskn" text.

You'll then see that F2 is reading the bootselect code of the second disk.
In fact you probaly only want the bootselect code on the first disk.

mbr(8) and fdisk(8) might be enlightening.

 ah... this means that you don't need VGA support to start xdm so...
 I'm thinking of running xdm the same way on SUN Ultra5 (where ATI
 support is only in -current yet).

Thanks! Unfortunately, I've really confused myself by not knowing the
basics. It might be in there, but I don't see how to put the original
bootblocks back, or why I can't boot WinXP correctly from the NetBSD
booter.

'fdisk -c mbr wd<n>' will copy in the standard (non-bootselect) mbr code.

WinXP will boot from the netbsd mbr code, but it may not like you
changing the disk from being disk0 to disk1.

Is there some way of switching the disk order? I know that disconnecting
the cable from the first drive allows XP to boot from the second. Is it
in order of how the BIOS finds them?

Swap the cables over!

Basically yes....
It might have some options for the order the disk controllers are
checked in.

You may have to leave the XP disk as disk0 (primary master), and load
netbsd of disk1.
Even in netbsd you will probably need to change /etc/fstab having switched
the root device name.

according to netstat and tcpdump, the mounts are already over tcp.

I went to a uniprocessor kernel yesterday, thinking it might be MP
related.  still seeing the problem.

It's not so much as to how the BIOS finds them.  Once the WinXP (or for that
matter, any WinNT derivative) partition begins to boot, the NT kernel looks
for the root ("C:") drive in \boot.ini (a hidden system file).  You'd need
to hack up boot.ini to fix the disk reference when moving disks, or else
you'll end up with a "STOP:...INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" blue screen at boot.

I don't even get that far. When I hit F2 it says "1: WinXP" and then it
just sits there no matter what I do. It finally lets me hit "F1" and
then it boots NetBSD.
