	These look fine, but don't forget that the important file is
master.passwd.  This contains the actual passwds.  While in single
user mode, you might try issuing 'passwd too' and resettnig the root

	You have to set your term environment to whatever it should
be for your console.  While in multi-user mode, issue 'echo $TERM' and
while in single user mode, issue 'TERM=<blah>' and then 'export TERM'
(where <blah> is what the echo $TERM told you).

	I don't have the Amiga port in front of me, but you should try
'man loadbsd' while theww system is running.
