First of all, you have to mount /usr/pkg/emul/proc (procfs), and maybe you
symlink it to /proc. I assume, you did so. And i had the problem you describe,
which went away after adding some mount option. I hade to boot the box to look
for the exact stuff, and i don't have the time for this currently, so have a
look at the manpage of procfs. The option to be added is "linux" or so.

Yes. But besides crashing when starting Win2k, nothing really happens.
