There are some WDC disks that work nicely. This is from a BP6 board too:

ad0: 26105MB <WDC WD273BA> [53040/16/63] at ata0-master using UDMA33
ad1: 26105MB <WDC WD273BA> [53040/16/63] at ata1-master using UDMA33
ad2: 26105MB <IBM-DPTA-372730> [53040/16/63] at ata2-master using UDMA66
ad3: 26105MB <WDC WD273BA> [53040/16/63] at ata3-master using UDMA66

As far as I know, the WD273BA is in reality a DPTA-372730 in disguise,
so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Anybody know if it's possible to
put the original IBM firmware on these disks?
