Hi Brian, Thanks for your response... Just to fill in some more details, this is an Intel DG33BU, part of the Intel "Classic Series". I can't paste a /var/run/dmesg.boot - because, I don't have one, I'm trying to do an install... It seems to be that the BIOS treats the ATA drives as C and D; but after the kernel starts (after the boot) FreeBSD can't find them. It does find the SATA drives. I couldn't find anything in the BIOS regarding the drives except to treat the SATA drives as "legacy" or not (whatever that means...) - Thanks! - - Dave Rivers - -- Work: (919) 676-0847 Get your mainframe programming tools at http://www.dignus.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
