It's been a while since I've had to use it, but as far as I can remember it has a basic directory structure in / and another one, the fixit media, in /mnt2. Some tools and device nodes are in the first, some in the second one. > The problem is that root on my HDD has to be mounted before I can use > /bin or /sbin tools - and isn't mount /sbin/mount ??? Try running fsck on the root partition before you mount it. Both fsck and mount should be available in the fixit shell. To mount a root filesystem on ad0s1a: # fsck -p /mnt2/dev/ad0s1a # mount -t ufs /mnt2/dev/ad0s1a /mnt I hope I got all the paths right, if not, search arround a bit, they should be there somewhere. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
