Sorry to butt in here, but I noticed this under "22.1. Installing the
boot manager"


Sometimes fdisk -B doesn't give the expected result (at least it
happened to me), probably if you install/remove other operating systems
like Windows 95 or Linux with LILO. In this case, try running fdisk -i
(which is known as fdisk /mbr from DOS) and then run again fdisk from


Why the mention of "fdisk /mbr from DOS" and "then run again fdisk from
NetBSD."  There is no "fdisk -i" available under Linux. The statement
"then run again fdisk from NetBSD." implies that "fdisk -i" is not run
from NetBSD?
