Is there a way to change the way the kernel boots and loads device. I
have successfully installed current on a usb pen drive (sd0)...the pen
does boot via.. usb-hdd as hd0a:/bsd. The problem is that the usb pen is
initialized and brought up as "sd0" after the kernel tries to load the
root on sd0a which fails and causes panic because sd0a is not available
yet as the usb parts have not been probe and loaded.
I noticd this when booting from the 3.4 boot cd, the root ,in this case
on the cd, was successfully found and initialized then my usb system and
pen were probed and brought up. So how could i change this and make the
necessary usb parts come up first so the pen will be available as sd0
before the it tries to set the rootdev=sd0a and fails.
I read the faq! about how openbsd boots and thought maybe boot.conf might
be able to do this but don't know how.
Thanks in advance
