geom tastes every hard drive it can for that bacony goodness in the last few tracks and is, in that way, as automagical as you could want. Since all the mirrhour info is contained in these meta-data (including the massively overbitted $id_number of any additional providers) as long as they're there, it should attach just fine. Nice way of solving that old: "My scsi controllers probe in dif'rent order every boot and da6 bekommt da9 some- times, help?" -- -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
