I partitioned and labeled my Compact Flash Harddisk (IBM 1gig) on my
portable unpacked the snapshot and tried to boot from wd on my j720 with
no luck, using the latest hpcboot and kernel, yes I did run Makedev. I have
two partitions one wince and one netbsd (the second partition). The kernel
fails to find the root device, is this because the kernal doesn't yet
support booting from wd or is because I have two partitions with netbsd
The Kernel is
The kernel and snapshot differ by a few days I assume I may get some
problems from this but I would still expect it to boot. a 1.5 kernel will
boot on a system with 1.4 binaries though admitadly most things core when run.
Interestingly wince recognises the first partition but windows 2000 doesn't
and wants to initialise the disk.
I have tried to use vnconfig to create a miniroot but get the message
opendisk Device not configured yet I have
in my kernels config.
This is on a NetBSD 1.5 i386
Any Help would be apreciated
