	Instead I found a message stating I first needed to do chroot
/target.  That did it, I could do nvsetenv all right now.

	But the SCSI id is 3, wouldn't that make it scsi/sd@3:0?  And the
partition I created for / was /dev/sda3.  That would make the file path

	Now I think that I screwed it.  Instead of using ofpath, I tryed to
use the Mac device paths as above and now the machine doesn't boot neither
from the floppy nor from the hard disk.  I also directed output to screen,
but that also failed and I can see nothing anymore.  Neither Cmd+Opt+O+F
neither Cmd+Opt+Shf+Del work anymore.  Isn't there a way of restoring
OpenFirmware to default settings?

	SOL... stupid me!
