Hi David,

so in the end you were able to boot off usb, right?

Also, the nightmare you had to work through can be avoided on servers
where you run illumos or FreeBSD by way of ZFS boot environments (BE).
Basically, it's like Windows style snapshots of core files you can
boot, in case stuff goes south.

I didn't post this to the list, since it mentions ZFS, and that alone
might get some people pissed off.
