Re: bootloader issue

Thanks! For now I'm going to assume that the super block issue was an artifact of my wacky HEAD / 1.6.1 combo install. If I see it again though I'll try this out.

..does not fix the super block issue.  fsck_ffs complains about the same
issue but doesn't repair it.  Not sure how to correct this.  The -b option
looks intriguing but I'm not sure what block number I would need to supply:

You should be able to run "newfs -N" on the file system.  That should
print out the fs metadata without really doing anything to the disk.
Note that usually block #32 is the first alternate superblock.
