/etc/fstab should *not* exist since /etc is in mfsroot.flp.  If there
is /etc/fstab which is match your disk configulation, that's magic :-)

We don't run fsck iff we don't use existing partitions.  That's why
"/etc/fstab:0: No such file or directory" message are not shown.
There is a code for fscking existing partitions but it doesn't work
until my last commit to src/sys/release/{alpha,i386,pc98}/boot_crunch.conf.

We are in 5-current era, and we can't asssume that all device file
listed in existing /etc/fstab in /dev on the disk (imagine you add a
new disk after installing 5-current).  Sysinstall should be changed,
since it assume that /dev on existing (root) partition has all device
files which are listed in /etc/fstab or whatever.  I'll try to fix in
this evening.
