System: NetBSD dr-teeth 1.4 NetBSD 1.4 (TEETH) #5: Mon Jun 14 12:20:28 EDT 1999 nocturne@dr-teeth:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/TEETH i386

The cd(4) manpage gives an example that, while accurate for many
NetBSD platforms, is wrong in the case of the i386 platform:

>      In addition the general scsi(4) ioctls may be used with the cd driver, if
>      used against the `whole disk' partition (i.e.  /dev/rcd0c).

The cd(4) manpage should be updated to reflect reality.


Something to this general effect:

s#/dev/rcd0c#/dev/rcd0c, or /dev/rcd0d on the i386 platform#
