    The -r flag takes a directory name, not a dial string.

    If you want to mount from a file server, you need
    to run the usual /boot/boot program, which takes care of
    dialing and posting and authentication and such.
    To do this, use the untested -b flag.

    You might find it useful to run -tb so that if you get
    an error, it doesn't disappear with the gui window.
