Hi Oliver.

I have coerrected weird installs of openbsd, where it didnt write the
bootstrap code into the mbr with its native install tools.

As a side note;
Installing the grub system onto the root(first)slice of an openbsd
slice also works, though the file /boot needs to be renamed to make
way for the /boot directory.
