	Installed manually with Tar/pax or did you use sysinst?

	This indicates a.) The first stage boot blocks were never installed
(disklabel or installboot depending on version) and/or b.) the file
"boot" or "boot.pmax" is not residing in the root level of your HD. Most
likely a.)
	If you have installboot it would be in /usr/mdec and the command is
something like ./installboot /dev/{rz or sd}Xc bootx_ffs. But that is
all off
the top of my head.
