BTW: I wouldn't suggest that anybody try this...
I just looked at NetBSD's SCSI CD-ROM driver, and it looks like it
doesn't even try to understand anything other than a whole-ROM ISO-9660
partition. It doesn't even bother trying to read a native disklabel
off the drive. grr.
this doesn't match with my experience. i've mounted separate
partitions from a sunos cdrom (4.2 ufs format), under netbsd/sparc.
