If you set the raid to autoconfigure as a root filesystem

know what happens :)
Honestly I went ahead and rebuilt a kernel hardcoded to raid0a to be
on the safe side, and it worked great. I still have the old one
backed up however that I could try if you really want me to, but
honestly I'm slightly scared :).
Heh, give is a span next time you need to reboot for any
other reason maybe.
Only weird thing that I've noticed is that once I'm in NetBSD, if I
reboot/halt back to SRM and try to boot again, BOOTP just sits there
and times out, almost like network connectivity isn't working. But if
I 'init', it works again. Very strange..
It sounds like NetBSD is leaving the network interface in a
state that SRM doesn't quite handle. Out of curiosity what
happens if you delete the network interface and shutdown
the interface before halting - 'ifconfig tlp0 delete'
'ifconfig tlp down' (replace tlp0 with network interface
of choice :)
