Hello everyone.  What is the best resource online for understanding how to use "fixit"??
I have a bootable FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE CD-R and I can start an emergency "fixit" shell on vtty4 (you start it after booting into sysinstall "...using the live filesystem CD..." and type Alt-F4 to get to a # prompt). I am able to do an "ls" only by typing "echo *" -- "cd" works and "pwd" works, but "which", "mkdir", "mount" and "more" do NOT WORK.  (a) My question is, with all of the data that can be fit on an ISO9660 filesystem, why was "fixit" and the array of tools so limited?! (b) http://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/CURRENT/installation/i386/trouble.html only makes a passing reference to fixit.flp only. Is there a tutorial at freebsd.org that explains use of the fixit shell??  What sequence of commands do I use to mount to a UFS floppy or UFS filesystem on my hard drive (and do I have to know which /dev/ and do I have to fdisk and label mountpoints in sysinstall ahead of time??)??! If anyone can clarify these three questions, I would forever be grateful.
