What do you mean "mount," kemosabe?  The kernel should print the partitions
when it boots.  You need to newfs the partition either in BSD (I should try
this...  it's been a while) or with the mkfs MacSide utility.  When the
filesystem is made, you should be able to mount /dev/sd0g (assuming you made
the second partition Usr) as a normal filesystem.  I have just incorporated
some new disk labelling code from finchm, so this will be a bit better in the

Someone else answer this, please.  I don't even have the old kernels around

I just found and executed a bug last night that prevented sendmail from
delivering local mail.  ps, w, and other commands like that need the
kernel to be named /netbsd.  If you booted off of another kernel: oh,
well. (ps actually allows you to specify the namelist on the command
line, but w isn't so flexible.)
