I am running flashrd 1.3 and using OpenBSD 5.3. I have created a CF image
(for a Soekris 4801) and a USB image for a Intel motherboard (CV860). So

all is well.

http://www.nmedia.net/flashrd/flashrd-faq.html I was attempting to get the
system to save /var upon restart. All documentation seems to say that:
a. /var is saved by default
b. on defines the "tardirs" shell variable to indicate which directories to
save with "/var" as the default
to no effect.
I found the only way to really effect /var from being saved upon reboot is
to edit the file:
and comment out the line:
Am I mis-reading the documentation?
