N.T. 4.0, patch level 5 ???
Boot disk failed to find both the SCSI disk and ethernet controller
(understandable - both very new with).
My problem was that I couldn't figure this out as the good old
``dmesg'' command wasn't there. I suspect that many people are
more familiar with dmesg than ``more /kern/msgbuf'' (I stumbled
across the latter, is that even the corect name).
sh: dmesg: command not found
Adding another `x_' command like:
int fd = open ("/kern/msgbuf", ....);
while (read (fd, &ch, 1) == 1)
if (isprint (ch))
write (1, &ch, 1);
To the crunchgen utils :-)
