yes, ran into something like that before. boot -h does not seem to do
the trick. But if you do
at the loader prompt it should work.
I have no idea why that's the way it is. I spent half an hour looking
at the code and then a "timeout fired".
May I add another item?
3) in systinstall when one adds a user to a different partition like
/u1 with a home of /u1/home/bz that did not work.
