1)  Can't sup.  Always says "invalid release XXX for collection YYY"

2)  Can't boot.  Got a kernel-aha from iastate's binaries directory, and
copied binaries from there, too.

Sorry if these are really stupid problems :(

I have tried many combinations of releases, collections, hostbases
(one doc mentions /a, the other, /b), etc.
2) gives this output when booting:
Changing root device /dev/fd0a
