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

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