I can't currently test this, so I'm asking: Is ttyv2 running a full live
system with reasonable $PATH variable? In other words, can I run dd,
fdisk, bsdlabel (including vi), newfs, tar/cp/cpio from inside this

And: Would it thus be possible to use dump(8) from the mounted live-CD and
restore(8) the system to the local hard disk.
