	IPC, but it's irrelevant
	installboot demands that its boot file be on a ufs filesystem.
	Unfortunately for it, local filesystems are now ffs.
	After installing and booting from a modern kernel,

	# installboot -v /boot bootxx /dev/rsd0a
	boot: /boot
	proto: bootxx
	device: /dev/rsd0a
	bootxx: entry point 0x340000
	bootxx: a.out header left on
	proto bootblock size 7680
	room for 256 filesystem blocks at 0x341868
	installboot: /boot: must be on a UFS filesystem

"It works for me". :-)
