Okay, with this change I'm in single-user mode now.  And, I'm a little

# ls
.cshrc    altroot   dev       home      root      stand     usr
.profile  bin       etc       mnt       sbin      tmp       var

bin     include libdata lkm     mdec    share
games   lib     libexec local   sbin

...okay, the time has advanced... So, are we or are we not blocking
