I have installed netBSD on my Alphastation 200 4/166.  However under the srm
console when I do a boot command to the hardrive where I installed BSD to I
get the following message.

"Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:"

If I hit return I get the next message.

"We recommend creating a non root account and using su(1) for root access."

Followed by a command prompt denoted by the # sign.  I suspect that the
problem is in my boot command, do I need to attach some other flags to it?
Can anybody help me out.  I realize that this is probably a simple problem,
but I'm only a beginner.
