I've only got one disk. :)

It is -current, as of last night.  When booting with -a, I don't even get
to the root disk prompt, I get the warnings and then lock up immediately.

Booting -s makes no difference either.

If it makes any difference, this disk was newfs'd under NetBSD 1.1, many
many moons ago... but it works fine under my 1.2 release kernel.
