More info..
When starting /stand/sysinstall it shows:
ad2: raw partition size != slice size
ad2: start 0, end 78168359, size 78165360
ad2c: start 0, end 10239, size 10240

This after upgrading to 4.9 stable as of 12-29-2003.
The other thing I did today which I don't know if is related. I
enabled USB today and was writing to a CF card in preparation to
install M0n0wall on a soekris machine. After installing USB
support and seen the card I did:

gzcat net45xx-pbxrxxx.img | dd of=/dev/rad[n] bs=16k

Where the xxx were the version for the image and [n] was 1...
/dev/rad1 (or was it.. 0..). Isn't that the CF card writer? I
got the number after looking at camcontrol and usbdevs (can't
remember which one from)... Did I messed up the drive when
writing that image?
