yes. but isn;t that in by default in 5.4 GENERIC?!

thanks. i guess that solves the ad6 mistery:

atapci0: <Intel ICH5 UDMA100 controller> port
0xfc00-0xfc0f,0x376,0x170-0x177,0x3f6,0x1f0-0x1f7 at device 31.1 on pci0
ata0: channel #0 on atapci0
ata1: channel #1 on atapci0
atapci1: <Intel ICH5 SATA150 controller> port
0xcc80-0xcc8f,0xcc98-0xcc9b,0xcca0-0xcca7,0xccb0-0xccb3,0xccb8-0xccbf irq
18 at device 31.2 on pci0
ata2: channel #0 on atapci1
ata3: channel #1 on atapci1
ad4: 152587MB <WDC WD1600JS-75MHB0/03.01C03> [310019/16/63] at ata2-master
ad6: 152587MB <WDC WD1600JS-75MHB0/03.01C03> [310019/16/63] at ata3-master
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ad4s1a

unless "at device 31.2 on pci0" points to some RAID evidence - which i
think it's false - than i read this as the ad6 disk sits there unused.
am i right?!

according to pciconf the atapci0 and atapci1 are differnt conrollers -
EIDE and SATA so they can both be on pci0 as 31.1 and 31.2?! still no RAID

thanks again...
