I would like to 'build' an extremely minimal (i386-)NetBSD-System. (Not
for use, just as an exercise.) What do I need if I just want to get a shell?
- a medium (cd, usb-stick, harddisk, etc.)
- a ms-dos partition-table with (at least) one primary partition (p.p.)
- a disklabel on the p.p. with a root-(disklabel-)partition (i.e. wd0a)
- a root-fs (ffs on wd0a)
- a primary boot block (/usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1) in the MBR or at the
beginning of the p.p.
- a kernel: /netbsd
Is that enough for single-user? What should I add for multi-user?
Thanks a lot & with kind regards,
