[SunRescue] What I need help with

I'm going to reinstall NetBSD so that I can reconfigure my le0 to give
my proper name for the machine -- there seems to be no other way to do

What I want to do is:

1.  Move everything on sd1 to sd0 and overwrite the new installation.
Both are NetBSD-1.5, with the things on sd1 that have been upgraded by
sup and pkgs.

If I can't do this, I'll need to read the old config files off sd1 and
will have to reset the boot prom to boot again from that drive and
copy all the information from /etc/ to my other machine (I had asked
someone about tarballing all of sd1 to the other machine before doing
this, but he thought it would be simply enough to move the stuff once
with tar), then change the boot again.

I need certain programs working for my news configuration to work.
Those programs are in /usr/pkgs/.  I have all my INN configuration
files on sd2.
