The '+' character after the "hd0" indicates that the BIOS has told /boot that this disk can be accessed via LBA. When doing a first-time install, you will sometimes see a '*' after a hard disk -- this indicates a disk that does not seem to have a valid OpenBSD disk label on it.

If I have the following showing after a probe during biosboot

disk: hd0+ hd1+* h2*

What is the meaning of '+', '+*' and '*' next to each disk?
