I just re-read the section in the handbook. Step 6 says to install the
boot blocks with disklabel. Maybe this is the part I've missed?
The bsdlabel man page shows this example:
bsdlabel -B da0s1
da0 is my boot disk. It is labeled as follows:
blacklamb# bsdlabel da0s1
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 1024000 0 4.2BSD 2048 16384 64008
c: 17783112 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part,
d: 16759112 1024000 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552
So can I safely issue this command without destroying the data on my drive?
