RE: How do you mount a Win98 drive under OpenBSD

The problem with that is I do know what rm -rf / does, I learned a lot of stuff on my own and looking at man pages then the one time I can't figure something out from the man pages no one will help everyone is rude and flames, and I end up not liking the OpenBSD user base.

Give me a break.  Those negative responses aren't because of a newbie
question.  The original question was a fine question, and the first
response was fine with the manpage references was fine, too.

The more than appropriate responses that came later were in response to an
entirely pathetic, ignorant, and irresponsible attitude.

rm -rf / sounds fine to me.  I think I'll do it as root and then read the
manpage.  Oops, where'd the manpage go???
