At the `#' prompt, run "fsck", and ignore the error about /dev/wd0f.
Press CONTROL-D to continue the multi-user boot sequence.
Once you're up and running, log in, edit /etc/fstab, and ensure that the
last two columns in the entry for wd0e are `0 0'. E.g, I have:
/dev/wd0h /pc/shared msdos rw 0 0
There seems to be a problem with fsck_msdos and FAT32 partitions.
Accessing the FAT32 partition with mount_msdos works ok, however.
