odd usbdevs is not on my system, it might not be part of netbsd 7 base.

on another note. i got it to work! from the x86 host atleast.

i went with the sdcard reader instead of a usb. and oddly the first
partition of the sd card, mounted succesfully from /dev/sd0e, and when i
tried to mount /dev/sd0d it said bad superblock, which i gambled meant it
was the disk itself not a partition. dd and its bootable!

now i just need to get the chromebook to boot from its sd card.
