gpt(8) for dealing with the partition table. Then you create

I've run into a problem with gpt. I installed NetBSD on another hard
drive, since the install CD doesn't appear to have either dkctl or gpt,
and when I try to run gpt on ld0, I get the following errors:
#gpt create -f ld0
gpt: unable to open device 'rld0d': no such file or directory
I tried opening ld0 with fdisk (#fdisk ld0), and it works just fine. Am
I missing something?
I know I'll get this eventually ;) Thanks again.
