Hello:

I was upgrading a system from 7.2 to 8.0 and all was going well until
the make installkernel step.  The / partition filled up when the new
kernel was installing.  Since /boot was taking up most of the space I
moved /boot to /usr/ and create a symlink in / then I did make
installkernel again and everything completed.  Unfortunately I didn't
move the necessary bits from /usr/boot back to / before rebooting and
now the system won't boot.  I'm trying to use the fixit option with
the livefs cd to repair the system, but I'm having problems with
gmirror.  The disks are in software raid0.  Can anyone point me in the
right direction to get /usr and / mounted from the mirror using fixit?

Thanks,

Joey
