Dear NetBSDers,
   I have NetBSD-current kernel (last weeks) on a i386 and my wd drive
on an EIDE controler is developing some bad sectors.  When I attempt
to badsect /usr/BAD XXXXXX it comes back with /dev/wd0e busy.  This is
true even in single user mode just after mounting the /usr file system.
   The disk is a Western Digital AC31600 (1.6Gig).
   The disk is shared by NetBSD and Win-95.

   Any suggestions on how to mark some sectors bad?
