In regards to the previous question about getting swap to run on some 
other partition, I think that the GENERIC configuration using the line:

config	netbsd	swap generic

only configures the kernel to recognize swap on the drive that the kernel 
itself resides on.  To get it to work elsewhere, you need to build a 
kernel that takes alternate partitions into account like:

config	netbsd	root on sd0 swap on sd0b and sd1b dumps on sd0b

Of course, this assumes that netbsd does configuration like BSD 4.3, 
which it may not.  Allen, do you know if the above will work?
