	I have:
		/dev/wd0a	/	
		/dev/wd0e	/var
		/dev/wd0f	/usr/local

  	I screwed up one install set, and went to "re-install" it after copying the right
	image to the disk.
  	It fsck's /dev/wd0a, /dev/wd0e, /dev/wd0f and then does /dev/wd0e again, which
	fails the second time.


	I suggest that in general, that an option to skip the fsck/mount sequence should
	be available.
