 As a note, I tried using a 5.1 release CD to boot from and when I get to
 the boot prompt from the 5.1 CD, I'm able to then boot off of my hard
 drive.  So... something is clearly messed up on that -current build as
 I'm not able to use the -current CD to get a boot prompt and then boot
 from hard drive.
 Then once I found I could boot using the 5.1 CD, I booted to sysinst and
 reinstalled the boot blocks on the hard drive and now can boot from the
 hard drive.  I suppose this means either boot, installboot, or
 bootxx_ffsv1 is broken as opposed to something else. (hardware for example)
