     I'm not sure what version of NetBSD you're using, but the release
versions don't have drvctl in the GENERIC kernel, which is needed for
gpt.  Can you type 'drvctl -p ld0' and show the output, please?

I'm using NetBSD 4.0 stable. drvctl -p ld0 gives me an error (/dev/drvctl: no such file or directory), but that's probably because it's not in the kernel, like you said. I managed to figure out how to use an MBR partition by using Linux to do the initial partitioning, followed by disklabel in NetBSD, so I don't need to pursue GPT any further. Just out of curiosity though, will future releases of NetBSD support the gpt utility without requiring a custom kernel?

I'm running newfs on the root filesystem now, so we'll see how it goes 8-) Thanks again for all the help!
