if fossil and venti are started at boot then the plan9.ini variable venti= is all thats needed.

if you want to start them after boot, booting from another filesystem then the -v option to fossil is what you are after.

i wrote a hand-holding doc about rebuilding a venti/fossil years ago: https://9p.io/sources/contrib/steve/doc/Venti-rescue.pdf this describes how they fit together. note this was more about rebuilding after a disc failure than installation but it might help.
