I got my SE/30 logic board, so I put it in my SE and tried to install
NetBSD/Mac68k but the Installer doesn't like something.

I think I followed the procedure described in README.

1) made the following partitions with Spot On (drive formatting and
caching software from MacPeak Research Ltd.  It came with the drive):

	root&usr, size=~80M, type=AUX root&usr
	swap, size=32M, type=AUX swap
	usr, size=~800M, type=AUX usr slice 2

I have a MacOS partition (~150M) on the drive, too.  The drive
(Fujitsu M2694ESA 1080M) is the only drive connected to the Mac.

2) ran MKFS on both root&usr and usr partitions.  No errors

3) ran Installer.  Bombed as shown below.

>MacBSD UFS file and install utility, 0.2
>Copyright (c) 1993 BCDL Labs
>Copyright (c) 1982, 1986, 1989 Regents of the University of California.
>Allen Briggs, Chris Caputo, Michael Finch, Brad Grantham, Lawrence Kesteloot
>Mounting partition 'A' as /
>Mounting partition 'G' as /usr.
>mounting /usr : No such file or directory

I know it complains that there's no directory named "usr" in the root
fs, but how do I create it?  Both MKFS and Installer are created on
Sep, 1993.  I'm ftping MacSideUtils.cpt.bin from cray-ymp and checking
if mine are the latest...

I hope I haven't done anything stupid.

Thanks for your help.
