Thank you for fixing the man page,
if someone wants to do some additional related cleanup
in the /etc/rc.initdiskless script that would be great.
One issue is we have "one size fits all" for the md files
default size of 5MB, which is for all practical puposes
too small. IIRC you need at least 8MB to hold what is
in a 11.1 var.cpio.gz file, and possibly more for ^head.
It would be nice to have the size of /var and /etc set
seperatly with resonable defaults.
At present my diskless environment over rides both of
these with md_size files in the ./conf directory.
There may be some lingering comments about 4MB, but
I am looking at 11.1 /etc right now.
