need to make sure you're trying to mount the block device /dev/wd0s1a
>(or whatever partition you're trying to boot)  in /etc/fstab.  /dev/rwd0

i dont get as far as fstab, I cant boot the drive even though I can mount /dev/w
d0s1 if i do it myself. wd0s1 is the actual root partition, although if i read t
he disklabel or fsck wd0 | wd0a it isnt the same as wd0s1. I am now running from
 another HD , albeit small, and really want to recover my main drive. I am tempt
ed to beg list members to telnet to my box and fix my drive :)
