Subject: Re: Missing sd0 on sparc with boot floppy
I had the same problem earlier this week, however running disklabel from
the shell worked okay. So my quick fix was to find the function in the
install.md ( i think that was the file ) and I inserted "echo sd0" at the
end of the function. I figure the sed command in that function wasn't
parsing the drives correctly, but I was to lazy to find out while.
Besides it gave me a chance to use 'ed' :-).
