FreeBSD ns1.phreaISP.net 5.4-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE #0: Sun May 8 10:21:06 UTC 2005 root at harlow.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
I found a computer that I was not using so I decided to install 5.4 on it.
It has 2 ide HD, however during the install ad0 was unwritable. I installed on ad1, took out the bad HD and booted up. An error occurred saying that root could not be mounted and gave me a chance to manually mount it. I was surprised at first but it made sense after i thought about. However I notice that the example given stated typing ufs:da0s1a.
I believe the example was meant to say ufs:ad0s1a.
Adjust /etc/fstab to mount / from the wrong disk.
