alright tried this, but "mount -uw" gives the following error:
WARNING: R/W mount of / denied. Filesystem is not clean - run fsck
mount: /dev/ad0s1a: Operation not mermitted
so i tried running fsck which gives the following error:
Can't open /dev/ad0s1a: Device not configured
Can't open /dev/ad0s1e: Device not configured
so i thought i'd run fsck on the device nodes located in /mnt (made using
the method suggested in a previous message), but then i realized that I
don't know exactly how that will help either.
here's one thing that confuses me. when i boot and it asks me for the
location of the boot slice, i enter /dev/ad4s1a, but the thing is that
this doesn't exist in /dev. so how exactly is the system booting through
what it should consider a phantom slice?
again... and any all help is greatly appreciated. :)
