 all pathnames should be written with ".Pa" macro.  also, i'd
 reference sysctl kern.rawpartition -- 'a' + that is the name
 you'll see in /dev.  ie, value '2' and '3' are common.  eg:
        so that all
        .Pa /dev/cd*
        will behave like the raw partition device.
        .Xr sysctl 7
        kern.rawpartition value to determine the raw partition, usually 
        .Pa /dev/cd0c
        .Pa /dev/cd0d .
