I already installed the files to the systems only internal hard drive. Can't say that I know enough about the machines internals but hey, there was only sd0 and sd1, and checking the partitions at install time showed sd0 had the same layout as the Netbook, in place of a ~4G stick.

It's a tad irksome to get a dmesg off without a working boot, as I need to plug the USB sick into my server, set it up, boot the netbook off it, then go reformat it on another system in order to mount it as storage to get the files off! Which is also part of why I redid that process in order to get an accurate right up for my last post, like I said, "Round 2" and mounted the installation on /mnt. Assuming no firmware related issues, configuring the network interfaces would still require rigging the USB stick (sd1) to boot the installation (sd0) on the netbook.

But yes, sd0 = internal, sd1 = usb stick. And OpenBSD 4.8 Release is installed into sd0, like this:
Code:
-> Win7
-> OpenBSD / and swap
-> Recovery partition
When I was in fdisk, I didn't make any adjustments to the flags because Win7 was already installed; it also boots into that fine. So I would rather hope that wouldn't interfere with OpenBSD. I have tried booting systems with no active partition flagged as booting, and it usually does not go "That" well. Not that I have ever done it with Windows 7 in the past, so I just assume it was fine.

Problem solved the hardway: adapting the Linux install from my laptop. In the future systems, me thinks Windows NT isn't going to get to used this much.
