I dumped/restored the system to ad8 yesterday and booted from it.
The system *did* boot but (alas) the /dev/ads1a(f) slices were mounted.
So, the system loaded the *old* root partitions (from the first drive).
After googling and reading I think I need *boot0cfg* but I'm a bit scary
to ruin my new boot (ad8) drive.
So, what is the exact syntax to make my system not only boot from ad8,
but also mount the /deb/ad8s1 slice as root slice?
After that I can remove my old ata drive and hopefully my zfs errors are
gone too then. ;-)
