1. I have a system that boots from SCSI, but has a BIOS controlled IDE drive
also installed. I have to type "boot(hd1,a)/netbsd" to get it to boot properly.
How do I change it so this is the default setup.
2. How do I get the right disklable for a SCSI CDROM. Mount-9660 doesn't
get it right, because they "partition table" shows the CDROM partition going
beyond the end of the disk. I don't think it records an ending cylinder at all.
3. How do I set up my machine so that it will take internet access from a
dialup PPP account. I have the right numbers for DNS, gateway, and
so forth. It's dynamic IP, which probably complicates things even
more, right? I'm guessing some combination of ifconfig and add route?
