    Re: Making OpenBSD boot from HDD

    It's OpenBSD 3.0 that I'm installing over FTP .... I might try FreeBSD as an alternative and I might have a luck with it.

    They say OpenBSD hasn't been cracked in 4 years. May be, since people can't get it to run .... :

    Wait a sec!! You must NEVER touch the c slice. You use 'z' to delete all partitions, then you make partitions:
    a MUST be your root partition
    b, d, e, f, etc can be anything

    You must NOT touch the c slice!!

    Nope. I didn't. I think C is representation of the whole drive as well.

    Here is my partitions.

    /dev/wd0a 4.2BSD # /
    /dev/wd0b swap
    /dev/wd0c 1976688 unused
    /dev/wd0d 4.2BSD # /var

    I don't know then Ask Ashcrow. You can also try FreeBSD.
