If you will excuse me for now. I'm trying to solve the top-post problem.

I lost environmental power temporarily a few days ago, and when it was back
(almost immediately), the machine restarted without any input from me.

I had mounted to /home a 30 GB usb 2.0 hdd.

I tried mounting again since I did not find it in df.

The prompt is always "WARNING: /home was not properly dismounted.

The output from dmesg is:
da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <HITACHI- DK23....> etc....
WARNING: /home was not properly dismounted.

Thank you Paul, tried umount but the result was the same.

Tried this:
ls /dev/da0*
/dev/da0s                  dev/da0s1
dev/da0s1c                           dev/da0s1d

Thanks in advance for any help to mount the disk again.

I'm wondering if he shouldn't try umount /home first.
