I EZGen'd scbbt and T1 (in that order) in right after SCF, rebooted, and
it didn't work (freeze boot)
I'll try other locations.
Another curious problem.
I made a TERM_32 bootfile. Boots fine, until startup gets to wcreate,
then everything freezes. If I omit the wcreate commands in startup,
boots fine. When I try to wcreate from TERM (32), again deep freeze.
What gives? Thanks.

I've removed the - from >-btemp whenever I've used this script. In
short, I think it is a typo.
The location of T1 in os9boot should not be an issue. You normally place
descriptors closely after their driver probably so it increases the
chance they are in the same block of memory. For recent NitrOS-9
distributions, the driver is scbbt not SCF which is the manager.
