Hello 2 all!

It's a i386 platform the machine mentionned.

Following appears when the 2.0-RELEASE's sysinst tries to create
the first FFS (wd0a, root), regardless of doing it with FFS1 or FFS2.

panic: ffs_valloc: dup alloc
Stopped in pid 1244.1 (mkdir) at          0xc02b648e:     leave

I've used the official floppy (boot1.fs, boot2.fs) images.

As the same ones containing 1.6.2-RELEASE stuff worked out, I don't
think that's a hardware problem.

Any ideas?

I'll dmesg(8) to here when the base sys got installed. This is
happening right now.
