The 3ware card was brand new and not yet in the base system, but a driver was posted on their site. How I solved the problem is that I installed another card that was supported in the base system, another hard drive that worked with the card (UltraDMA 133 card/hard drive IIRC). After installing on that hard drive, and patching to support my raid card, I booted off the patched drive and the raid array was then recognized. I used dump/restore to move the patched system from the IDE hard drive to the raid array, then could boot off the raid array as desired and could remove the extra card/hard drive. HTH. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
