I have an i386 running 2.2 that won't boot off wd0. The disk has too many
cylinders and the bios is too old to handle it.
Right now I boot from a floppy that has a /etc/boot.conf with this:
set howto -a
But what I'd really like to use is this:
set rootdev wd0a
This could be extended to bootdev and swapdev. Is this even possible? I
know very little about the convoluted IBM/Wintel boot sequence.
Yes, I know I can build a special kernel. I don't want to.
