I fixed this, and now have all of the bsd files in what was formerly my 
home partition (sd0h), and the fstab file reads:

/dev/sd0h /  ffs rw  1 1

Still, booting  with  b sd(0,0,7) gets me 

sun3_save_symtab: bad magic  

and later, after  the NetBSD1.0A (GENERIC) message , and some device stuff...

root on sd0h
swap on sd0b
dump on sd0b

I get

panic: cannot mount root
Stopped at            0xe07d6fa:  unlk  a6

If any one can figure this out, please let me know.  Do I have to 
recompile the kernel to run off of sd0h?  Or is it something else?

Thanks in advance,
Dan H
