I already installed the files to the systems only internal hard drive. Can't say that I know enough about the machines internals but hey, there was only sd0 and sd1, and checking the partitions at install time showed sd0 had the same layout as the Netbook, in place of a ~4G stick.
It's a tad irksome to get a dmesg off without a working boot, as I need to plug the USB sick into my server, set it up, boot the netbook off it, then go reformat it on another system in order to mount it as storage to get the files off! Which is also part of why I redid that process in order to get an accurate right up for my last post, like I said, "Round 2" and mounted the installation on /mnt. Assuming no firmware related issues, configuring the network interfaces would still require rigging the USB stick (sd1) to boot the installation (sd0) on the netbook.
But yes, sd0 = internal, sd1 = usb stick. And OpenBSD 4.8 Release is installed into sd0, like this:
-> Win7 -> OpenBSD / and swap -> Recovery partition
