Hello everyone.

[1] 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.

[2] (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??

[3] 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.

Thank you kindly.
