NAME
     growfs - start up script to grow the root file-system

DESCRIPTION
     The following options in /etc/rc.conf control the behavior of growfs:

           growfs_enable      (``NO'') If set to ``YES'', the first time the
                              machine boots, the root file-system will be
                              automatically expanded, if possible, to fill up
                              all available space after it.

     To expand the root file-system with-out rebooting, run the following
     command:
           % /etc/rc.d/growfs onestart

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     The script requires that awk be present and on the path.  This usually
     means that /usr should be mounted prior to running the script.

FILES
     /etc/rc.conf

EXIT STATUS
     The growfs utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
