You’re up late.
OK. The release notes basically say “put in
the CD and follow the directions that appear.”
A naive install with the 6.2.1 NC CD-ROM seems to
have resulted in a system with the newer kernel but
the older drivers, rather than a valid 6.2.0 installation.
I’m not sure how this happened; someone else did the install.
The directories on the CD-ROM repository package
system have numbers in them like “2.1.3”, while the documentation
talks about “6.2.0”, so it’s hard to figure out what the current
state of the system is.

I am not sure if it is in the release notes or not, but 6.2.1 is an update
to 6.2.0. The 6.2.1 CD is a combo of the 6.2.0 base install and the 6.2.1
updates (so that people don’t need two discs to do new installs). So to get
6.2.1 you have to install the Momentics packages.

Why are there two sets of drivers? Why are the old
ones even on the QNX 6.2.1 NC .iso?
A cold install on a new machine of 6.2.1 NC has
resulted in the older
drivers being loaded. This resulted in
“devn-rtl: Unable to mmap_device_memory.”, and the
Ethernet interface does not get initialized. This
is presumably because of the mmap API change in the
core QNX technology.
How do we fix this?
