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
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.
