i don't understand what you mean by 'left the fsck alone', but i'll try to

/ ( and whatever is under it) is NFS mounted read only, as should be.
the 'original' solution is to make /etc writable is to mount a MD, then copy 
/conf/default/etc to it.
my 'solution' is to mount union /etc/conf as the 'writable' part. 1) i don't
have to copy - and hence 2) have only one copy of /etc for all my diskless.
since the next part of rc.diskless1 copies files specific to the host/cluster,
and there are some cases that i want to actually remove a file, i do that
in rc.local (configurable via rc.conf.local).

thanks for looking into this,
