Re: how to set root drive?



You can enter "-a" at the boot prompt which will cause the
kernel to ask you where the root disk is.  Then, you can
build a kernel thusly:
    cd /sys/arch/i386/conf
    cp GENERIC MYBOX
    vi MYBOX
	change:	config	bsd	swap generic
	to:	config	bsd	root on sd1 swap on sd1 dumps on sd1b
    config MYBOX
    cd ../compile/MYBOX
    make depend bsd
    mv /bsd /bsd.old
    cp bsd /
    reboot
