System: NetBSD pzero 1.4Q NetBSD 1.4Q (XTERM) #19: Sat Feb 5 20:02:59 EST 2000 firstname.lastname@example.org:/j/netbsd/obj/XTERM i386
I installed a system that has 192Mb of ram. I don't want any swap for now.
I answered zero to swap question. A stock 1.4X kernel died. A 1.4N kernel
(previously built) didn't mind.
I used disklabel -e wd0 to create a "b" partition with offset 0 and size 0.
When I had done "disklabel wd0" I got a warning that partition b had a non-zero
offset but a zero size.
