I copied a NetBSD image to a removable hard drive, before installing
Linux on the main hard drive on my laptop. However, I forgot to do
some magic involving the boot sequences. I've thus been unable to boot
NetBSD from wd1 when running grub on wd0. What's the easiest way to
fix this? I can't easily boot NetBSD and get to that drive, since wd1
and the CD both want the Ultrabay. I don't have any USB disk
enclosures or CD drives.
