Ok, that should be good. Are you SURE it is booting that kernel
though? Do you see the
NetBSD 3.1_STABLE (VINYAMAR) #2: Wed Apr 18 09:46:42 EDT 2007
lines on the console? Is your root harddrive actually on the first

You don't actually need the config file unless you want to rebuild the
kernel from source.
