I had problems with creating UFS1 filesystem in 5.1R slice... newfs -O
did not working...
and after creating UFS1 in 5.1 slice by sysinstall of 4.8R the 5.1R can't boot...
but after reinstal 5.1R in 5.1R slice with UFS1 it will ok, and I moved
some data from exists UFS2 filesystems to UFS1... well, be careful with 5.1R ;)
