On the subject of booting, I don't suppose you know how to get rid of the bootloader type thing? When I boot up it has like F1 BSD I've found boot0cfg which seems as though it 'installs' that, but I can't see anything about actually removing it?
Boot from a DOS bootdisk and run "fdisk /mbr" to clear that out.
There's a way to do it using the BSD fdisk and boot0cfg, but I don't recall how off the top of my head. It's in the man pages for those two, though.
I have two different answers! Matt says I can't really get rid of it, but can install someone elses, and that I should just reduce the timeout if it's too long.
Here comes the third:
boot0cfg -B -b /boot/mbr
we already carry a simple mbr (in comparison to the boot manager boot0) which can be installed.
