System: NetBSD macbsd-840av 1.3.2 NetBSD 1.3.2 (HOTZ) #5: Wed Aug 5 22:09:06 PDT 1998 hotz@macbsd-840av:/usr/src/sys/arch/mac68k/compile/HOTZ mac68k

	See synopsis.  Note that kdb_edit -n works just fine.  I tried a symlink from /.k to
	/etc/kerberosIV/master_password and that didn't change anything.
	Set up and enable kerberos.  Reboot.
	None known.  Seem to be able to run kerberos without kadmind though.
