When you install OpenBSD and it asks you if you should use the whole disk, just reply "Yes"
Puffy rules.

Im not doing that yet. XP partition has a valid boot signature and
BOOT.INI is edited for OpenBSD. XP is running and gives the
prompt for OpenBSD upon start.

c:\openbsd.pbr="OpenBSD"

The following is not figured out yet.

# dd if=/dev/rsd0a of=openbsd.pbr bs=512 count=1

If the above is placed into the NTFS partition drive C:\
is it going to be read as that format? Also OpenBSD when
installed the 1'st time did not mount like this,
mount -t auto ?

Dude,


What accident?

What does this have to do with this thread?

The accident that happened to you. The thing that happened that
leaves you wondering about lawsuits from the 90's that have been long since forgotten. That has you asking Unix questions on a climbing forum.

If we knew we could answer your questions better.

See, you're confused in a funny way. I know the answers to most of your questions, but I can't figure out what is going through your head so I can't really answer them. If you tell us what happened to you things will work a little more smoothly.

If you are not sure what you are doing, partition-wise, then you would be well advised to purchase an extra disk and have one OS per disk.

Dude,


Please get out of this thread
with the non relevant matters and more so my business before
I may action you.

How about the following quid pro quo? If you keep your Unix and computer questions out of other threads, I'll leave you and Locker and Malemute to figure out your OpenBSD problems here in peace, and never bring up the accident again?

On the other hand, if you want to talk about what happened with someone let me know.

Best wishes!

Dude,

You seem like an ok guy. People would take you more seriously if you didn't use so many avatars.

If all you want is an inexpensive replacement for Microsoft Office, why don't you just download OpenOffice for Windows? You don't need to install OpenBSD.

OpenOffice is free and it works very well: www.openoffice.org

Back to this.
ibs=n Set the input block size to n bytes instead of the default 512.

obs=n Set the output block size to n bytes instead of the default 512.

bs=n Set both the input and output block size to n bytes, superseding
the ibs and obs operands. If no conversion values other than
noerror, notrunc, or sync are specified, then each input block
is copied to the output as a single block without any
aggregation of short blocks.

What is 1m? Some size for offset superblocks?

Here is the final fdisk. OpenBSD is now installed with XP.
Credit: B_E_S

I think I can reflag the OpenBSD partition, *write the *bootsector
*again with fdisk and boot OpenBSD. Should only be a few minutes
now to boot that way but it's not desirable.

Malemute I still don't see ***1m? Is it n000000? I don't think
that's a superblock or boot sector block size? Yes some CD can
probably be copied and written to without other tools.

Congratulations.

You do have a somewhat unusual style of presentation, so it's ez to kid around with you.

Glad you got it resolved.

Thank you, still working on C:\file.pbr for dual boot from WIN.INI.

Malemute I still don't see ***1m?

Where sizes are specified, a decimal, octal, or hexadecimal number of
bytes is expected. If the number ends with a ``b'', ``k'', ``m'', ``g'',
or ``w'', the number is multiplied by 512, 1024 (1K), 1048576 (1M),
1073741824 (1G) or the number of bytes in an integer, respectively. Two
or more numbers may be separated by an ``x'' to indicate a product.

Now I see it at that link. 1m in replacement of 512 for that?
