I am running 1.0. Due to the need to install OS/2, I have put netbsd
on sd0, and wd0 contains dos and os/2.
I installed os-bs 2.0 beta 8. to deal with this situation. It can boot
netbsd off of sd0 (which the os/2 boot manager wouldn't, hurray).... now
my questions:

1) the sdboot program correctly loads the kernel off of hd1 without any
further prompting, but the kernel looks on wd0 for the root filesystem,
which loses. If i explicitly type hd(1,a)/netbsd at the boot prompt, though,
it works right. Is there a known patch for this?

2) Does anyone know if disklabel'ing my wd0 disk will bother os-bs? I am
so happy to finally have this working, that I am loathe to take a chance
on wiping it out just to experiment.
