Well, I decided I'd finally try out NetBSD 1.0a.  Since I need to have a
stable system running here, I figured "Hey, I'll just clear off a hard
disk, install 1.0a on it, and then I can boot whichever system I need." 

So I cleared off my 270 MB sd1 drive, partitioned it so that it had its
own swap space, downloaded the July 13 binary snapshot, and installed

Whenever I try to boot off that drive, I get a panic right after it says
"changing root device to sd1a". 
The error message is "swfree error 6" I think - it reboots too fast for
me to be sure. 

The funny thing is, if I copy my 0.9 kernel onto that disk, it boots
fine until it can't load 1.0a's /bin/sh. 

On a hunch, I swapped the SCSI id's of the first two drives, and it
turns out that 1.0a will boot fine if the drive is sd0. 

So, am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? 

The system: 486DX266, Bustek 542B, 16MB RAM, a bunch of SCSI devices
(three 270 MB disks and a CDROM).
