The NetBSD Guide available from

has an error in the section on CCDs. It states that an old disklabel
can be removed from a device by writing 8k of zeros to "/dev/rsd0"
(note the lack of a partition letter). I believe the correct device
should be "/dev/rsd0c".

Look here to see the typos:


Change rsdX to rsdXc.
