Hmm, that solution was easier than I thought & worked, thanks. I suppose I
should spend more time with OpenBSD.
I'm not sure if I understand it though. I have another OpenBSD system that
has /var in the fstab file and ALSO has the "mount /var >/dev/null" command
in the "/etc/rc" file. Yet it does not mount it twice. Why is that?
... and if it's not in fstab, what would this "mount" command do anyway? How
would it know how to mount it?
