Ok; what you have done is made a dump on the root mirror device; great! But how do I now tell FreeBSD to use that "restored" partition as /? Edit /etc/fstab to effect the change for the next boot? I have a nagging suspicion it will then still boot off the old / slice. - Mark _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
