Re: Failure to boot i386/amd64 netbs-5.0 cd

Thanks for the advice, I went into userconf, disabled umass ugen wd and sd,
yet the still seemed to try to load, I noticed something about viaide in between loop
and disabled that aswell, this time around it gave me an error saying something about
/dev/console not found
failed init error 2
where is init [/sbin/init]
and i couldn't do anything from there.

The "config -x /netbsd" command (assuming /netbsd is your current
kernel) should show if USERCONF is enabled/uncommented).

I'd probably look like:

> boot /netbsd -c

Which should drop you to the userconf utility prompt, which supports
various commands including the "disable <device>" one (see "man 4
userconf" for more information).  Disabled devices will only be
disabled for the current boot session.
