Any more progress with the DS5000/25 yet? I'm still able only
to get into maintenance mode by commenting out all lines in
/etc/fstab. I suspect there is something wrong with the login
binary, but I also had no luck with one that Karsten Merker sent
me. Also, how can I create a non-root user and issue a password?
There seems to be no passwd executable in the root filesystem,
and vipw seg faults on my machine. Same result when I use fdisk.
Thanks for any time you can spare on this.
