Subject: ffs: /dev/ra0e on /usr: Operation not supported by device ?!

I´ve installed the vax-port at my uvax II as subscribed in the INSTALL doc.
The uvax is equiped with two rd54 disks. I can boot the miniroot:

>>> b/3 dua0
: ra(0,0,1)gennetbsd

as well as the single-user mode:

>>> b/2 dua0

>From the miniroot at ra0b it is possible to mount: ra0a at /mnt, ra0e at
/mnt/usr, ra1c at
The the normal startup: 
>>> b dua0 works until the mount starts. ra0a is mounted mounted as root,
but /dev/ra0e as /usr fails. The error message is:

ffs: /dev/ra0e on /usr: Operation not supported by device.

The fstab is OK but also the manual mount of other partitions fails.
I´have rebuild the /dev with MAKEDEV without any improvements. Any clues ?

thanks is advance,
