I think the issue here is that someone said "config ... on sd0..." and
config complained, not because the machine it was running on didn't
have sd0 (heavens!), but rather because the config file in question
didn't have sd0. I don't think an sd* line is enough, though I haven't
In the absence of a copy of the config file in question, though, about
all anyone can do is guess. If the original poster would care to mail
me a copy of the config file privately, I'd be glad to have a look.
