This is from the man file for path_to_inst on Solaris 9. Check to see if
it is the same in 7.
If the file is removed the system may not be bootable (as it
may rely on information found in this file to find the root,
usr or swap device). If it does successfully boot, it will
regenerate the file, but after rebooting devices may end up
having different minor numbers than they did before, and
special files created via mknod(1M) may refer to different
devices than expected.
For the same reasons, changes should not be made to this
file without careful consideration.
