There are still issues with the boot loader.
Sigh. I haven't been
able to figure out why some machines can't find /boot/loader. It's got
to be some sort of disk addressing issue but none of my boxes have this
behavior so I can't track down exactly what or why.
Will explore those with Sam offline and get back...
I have seen it with other *BSD's and other OS' - OS/2 notoriously so.
Controller/BIOS or cylinder issue, sometimes just driver sequencing.
Often not the same for initial installation as it is later..
