System: NetBSD 1.3K NetBSD 1.3K (CHEST) #0: Wed Mar 17 08:02:32 CST 1999 i386

	(I may simply be wrong; my install partially failed, so I just
	untarred everything.)

	When I did my install, I found a *nearly* fully populated '/dev' on
	my new root partition.

	Fully populated, that is, except for /dev/ttyE0, which wscons needed,
	and where getty wanted to run my console login.  Thus, no logins.

	Install on port-i386 by untarring everything.  May also happen
	normally; I'm assuming device nodes were mostly made, since all
	the others were fine.
