:This box is a dual PIII with 2 SCSI drives and 2 SCSI cdroms.
:The DragonFly install cd won't find the root FS when booted from a SCSI 
:Solution: I booted from the FreeBSD 4.2 Live CD (the second one). 
:Entered 'Fixit' mode and mounted the DragonFly cdrom that I inserted in 
:my second cdrom drive. The slice I had freed for DragonFly happened to 
:be the third one on the first disk (da0s3), but the dev entries aren't 

    Thanks for the README fixes, Miguel.

    I'm sure there is some stupid-simple reason for why DFly isn't finding
    the SCSI CDRom root.  This would be a good bug for someone to track
    down!  I need to focus on a number of panics reported by David Rhodus
    and get back to the IPC work.

:Finish the install and reboot. There's a trivial typo in the README (see 
:attached patch) in the supfile path, no biggie.
:I've rebuilt world and kernel, and typing this in Mozilla Thunderbird. 
:This works so well that DFly is now my default desktop OS. Congrats to 
:Matt and the rest for making such a nice OS.


:Btw, there used to be a thread about the new install program, has anyone 
:  started working on it? Sounds like an interesting project to me.
:	Miguel Mendez

    Nothing serious has been done yet in regards to the new installer.
