this might again be a little off topic for this list, but it came up
while working on a sparc trying to netboot netbsd.
as said i was working on netbooting a sparcstation 5 from a linux box.
after much trial and error i came to the single user prompt. according
to the netbsd diskless netboot howto  i have to mount /usr at step
#4 at the third section.
this caused an error, which i was able to fix. but when i looked into
things i noticed the /usr directory with it's content is already
available in the base.tgz file and has to be moved from the root so it
can be mounted.
is there any reason why i should move and mount this when it's already
in the right place to start with?
