It seems to work fine on my SE/30, too (given the fact Allen's and
mine are almost identical, it's not surprising, though).  But...

*Notice* You should keep the old files on your root partition; BETA-0
doesn't have some of necessary files.  I did clean install as Allen
said (i.e. MKFSing both root & usr partition), and got stunned when I
found dev.tgz was almost empty ;-).
