I'm pretty stuck with the death of my bsd machine after attempt on upgrade
from 6.2 to 6.3. Some time ago, I successfully upgraded from 6.1 to
6.2following the steps in the manual

1) cvsup source to specific release
2) buildworld
3) buildkernel
4) installkernel
5) boot
6) mergemaster -p
7) installworld
8) mergemaster
9) boot

Now, after completing steps 1 to 5 the system won't boot and stucks at the
following prompt

bsd: Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad1s1a
bsd: mountroot>

the prompt has "?" command which shows available boot devices. The only
device present there is my floppy (fd0)

I can choose to boot to loader prompt but have no idea how to recorver, and
more interesting, to figure out why that failure occurred?

Check the kernel boot messages to see why your ad1 did not get probed. Did the ata driver report an error? Did it attach the drive under a different device number?
