My kernel config already includes all that. Just installed OpenBSD, and the other drives work just fine. I guess that's my OS.
Quite disappointing that FreeBSD is actually behind in terms of hardware support, particularly for a relatively popular motherboard. On 3/18/07, Garrett Cooper <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Here's what I have for my kernel config though for the device drivers section, related to PATA/CD/DVD stuff: # ATA and ATAPI devices device ata device atadisk # ATA disk drives device ataraid # ATA RAID drives device atapicd # ATAPI CDROM drives device atapifd # ATAPI floppy drives device atapicam options ATA_STATIC_ID # Static device numbering # SCSI peripherals device scbus # SCSI bus (required for SCSI) device ch # SCSI media changers device da # Direct Access (disks) device cd # CD device pass # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access) Cheers, -Garrett _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
