Please note that I'm a "fellow newb", and don't take this
as if it were from an authoritative source (other than whoever
"Make note of the fact that /boot.config is read only from the `a' parti-
tion. As a result, slices which are missing an `a' parition
intervention during the boot process."
P.S. It might be better to go back and set things up
correctly. As someone just said, you can do it with
just / and swap, if you don't feel the need to have
seperate partitions for /var, /usr, /tmp, whatever.
