   I saw this the other day...

   I've been examining the mfs code, and I'm not really sure why
it needs to use random values...

   Anyone know the history on the '#ifdef FSIRAND' code?


ps: break out of the boot sequence, 'ls -al /etc/ > /dev/random'
    and then 'exit' will get around this and other problems, but
    requires hands on reboots.
