Seth & list,

	I thought long and hard about this one, as I'm
still learning more about OpenBSD each day.  However,
this hang time is before the kernel boots - this takes
place before the OpenBSD BOOT prompt.  Am I correct 
in saying that the kernel doesn't come into play before
this prompt comes up?

	Or am I completely off the mark, and am smoking
a load of socks?
