Yaifo updated for 4.2 in CVS

OpenBSDFirst things first: Yaifo is now available via CVS. And (obviously) I set up a SourceForge Project, but I haven't done much with it yet.

I also set up a new category on my website for Yaifo so that it has its own page. I haven't decided yet, but I think I'll just have the SourceForge Project Homepage redirect to the page here.

I will still generate tarballs for downloads, but you can get the latest and greatest from CVS:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@yaifo.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/yaifo login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@yaifo.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/yaifo co -P yaifo


Besides updating Yaifo for OpenBSD 4.2, I also made the install complete message warn users to use the reboot command instead of typing halt (which could be disastrous if you don't have console access):
CONGRATULATIONS! Your OpenBSD upgrade has been successfully completed!
To boot the new system, enter reboot at the command prompt. Once the
system has rebooted, you will be able to use your system.

Note: Using the halt command at this point may render your installation
unreachable. Make sure to use the reboot command instead.
