You were right :) I changed the 'i' to a 'dev' and after zthreebus0 at
mainbus0 it kept on going, but not very far. I get lots of hd types
which were depreciated, then it went to fsck where it right away comes
back with:
/dev/rsd6a CANNOT SEEK: BLK 16
/dev/rsd6a UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY run fsck manually. 
manually didn't help either. 
Also I keep on getting: can not map errors....
cp complains about wrong arguments. 
When I try to go into mulit user mode lots of errors come flying along
the screen until it says:
init getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/ite0, sleeping.
(Actually I had this error a couple of weeks ago when I was running
old binaries with a new kernel) 

Does this mean that I need to have the rest of the source tree
recompiled in order to use the new kernels?
