I have duplicated the error on Qemu...

But, have found 'sync' will alleviate that error when restarting.

There is no difference between shutting down and restarting until the
end from the kernel perspective; it does the very same stuff until it
gets there. I will see if I can reproduce this odd behaviour under Qemu
- maybe it's a VMware problem.
Also, does "sync" executed from a Terminal before rebooting change

That's the same as in BeOS; if you create directories in the root, they
will only be temporary.
Maybe you want to use the "mountvolume" command instead, which does the
job automatically.

Tested with what revision? I'm currently working on the net_server/TCP/
etc. :-)
The net_server is now started automatically; the Netscript is no longer
