Hi, I just joined this list.

My problem: With the setup outlined below, I can get to the single user
prompt and do some things, but some fail with a "floating point
exception" and dump core.  This prevents me from successfully booting
multiuser.  I don't know how to track this down-- gdb is one of the
things that gets the fpe, and I haven't figured out what to put into
the boot flags box to enable kdb.

Any pointers would be helpful.  (Once I get past this, I have some
other questions.)
