	If you start the fixit mode of disc1 then the
	environment variable EDITOR is set wrong. Its
	value is /mnt2/stand/vi, but vi doesn't exist
	at this place.

	This concerns the variable PAGER likewise.
	Go to fixit mode:

	Fixit# $EDITOR
	/mnt2/stand/vi: not found

	There are at least two possible solutions.

	First of all /mnt2/stand is a symlink to /rescue,
	but /rescue doesn't exist. It migth be better to
	create a symlink to "rescue" instead of "/rescue".
	In this case /mnt2/stand would be a symlink to
	"rescue", i.e. /mnt2/rescue becomes the real path.
	EDITOR don't need to be changed and vi works. PAGER
	still doesn't work, because more doesn't exist
	in rescue.

	A second approach would be to simply change EDITOR to
	/mnt2/usr/bin/vi resp. PAGER to /mnt/usr/bin/more.

	These two patches deals with the issue. You may
	apply both patches.
