I thought this might have something to do with it, I was going to hack at
it a bit last night,  but it was getting late and, well, school called.
I'm going to look back into it tonight.  I thought of another possible
cause - I installed DragonFly on top of a FreeBSD 5 install, some of the
files were kept intact (aparently it didn't newfs all the partitions).
I'm going to format the entire slice in linux, and then try to install
DragonFly again.  Thanks for the response though, I was half expecting to
get yelled at for bringing a potentially non-dragonfly issue to the list.
