    devfs rule add path '*' unhide

Otherwise the * will be expanded by the shell.

Weird. Maybe there is something in the way PCBSD is set up, I don't know. I=
've
never used it.

Is there anything in the PCBSD boot CD/image that you can use to mount the

Otherwise you might have to wait for someone knowledgable in PCBSD to weigh
