Summary: Swap partition...(duh)

So results that swap doesn't get mounted (wow I feel smart).

But here'e the interesting part, after the power outage I
had to do a fsck on /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 and I'll put money on
it that the system recovered an old copy of the /etc/vfstab:

#device device mount FS
fsck mount mount
#to mount to fsck point type
pass at boot options
#/dev/dsk/c1d0s2 /dev/rdsk/c1d0s2 /usr ufs
1 yes -
fd - /dev/fd fd - no -
/proc - /proc proc - no -
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s1 - - swap -
no -
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 /
ufs 1 no -
swap - /tmp tmpfs - yes -

So note the strategically placed # in front of the
/dev/dsk/c1d0s2 line, solved the problem...weird.

Well everything works now and I'm just a bit savvier about
SunOs now....

The sticker on the side of the box said "Supported
Platforms: Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, or better", so
clearly Linux was a supported
