But I do have rc scripts etc on it, and they do succeed in
running. Let's say for instance that I didn't have rc.local, and that
the last line in rc tried to run it. init would then put me into
single user mode because it didn't reach the exit(0). If I do have all
the bits necessary, then rc will exit properly, and I get the
multiuser login prompt. My problem is that I seem to be put into
single user mode before rc is run. I then hit ctrl-D, rc is run and I
get my multiuser login prompt. The whole thing stops at:
boot device: fd0
root on wd0a dumps on wd0b
root file system type: ffs

At this point I hit ctrl-D and get
setting tty flags
starting network
(and I can login)

So, my rc script succeeds, and I am not sending a -s flag, so what can
I try next?
