Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have installed FreeBSD (well, that is the only one I could anyway),
but I am hitting a snag: When I boot up the box, it refuses to automount
the root fs, then takes me to "Manual Root File System specification" option.

When I specify

ufs:/dev/amrd0s1a then the box boots. What I don't understand is why it
is refusing to obey the same thing in fstab..

mountroot> ufs:/dev/amrd0s1a
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/amrd0s1a

How do I get around this one????

Try to compile rootfs specification in to the kernel:

options         ROOTDEVNAME=\"ufs:amrd0s1a\"
