Hi there,

I get a "No disks found" during the disk partitioning phase of a FreeBSD
Standard install using the image at <ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/
releases/sparc64/ISO-IMAGES/5.0/5.0-RELEASE-sparc64-miniinst.iso> on the
office's spare Ultra Enterprise 1. The docs I read at <http://people.freebsd
.org/~bmah/relnotes/5.0-RELEASE/installation-sparc64.html> weren't too 
useful. This machine contains one old installation of Solaris, FYI, but 
we don't need to keep that.

This would be my first introduction to FreeBSD, so be gentle.


     |No disks found!  Please verify that your disk controller is being  
     |properly probed at boot time.  See the Hardware Guide on the       
     |Documentation menu for clues on diagnosing this type of problem.   

                           [  OK  ]                                
                    Press enter or space 

HARDWARE.TXT wasn't useful. Invoking Disklabel from the Index (Glossary 
of functions) menu preoduces the same message.

Here's the output of devalias in Open Firmware
