	Speaking for myself
System: NetBSD zoo 1.4Y NetBSD 1.4Y (ZOO-$Revision: 1.52 $) #0: Fri May 26 14:58:14 MDT 2000 jim@zoo:/home/tmp/compile/sys/arch/i386/compile/ZOO i386

	The newbtconf(8) man page, in the "Getting Started" section, contains
	the sentence:

	  In order to initialize the system for operating in a manner which
	  supports multiple boot configurations, newbtconf must be run
	  with the option.

	Of course, this doesn't tell us what option must be supplied.

	man newbtconf

	Probably it should say "init option".
