DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-03
:Here's a diff... but I also wanted to insert a note of using fdisk
:interactively to change partition types (a very common situation), but
:couldn't figure out the command from the manpage (fdisk /dev/ad0 just

:the FreeBSD install much earlier and didn't need to mess with it
Ok, not bad. I'm going to edit-down the first part a bit... we really

prefer that someone with no experience at all not even try to keep their
existing configuration intact, since they are likely to blow it up anyway.
But everything else is fine, I'll commit something tonight.
