I have found out that putting device hints into loader.rc in the form of loader environment variables: set hint.fdc.0.at="isa" set hint.fdc.0.port="0x3F0" set hint.fdc.0.irq="6" set hint.fdc.0.drq="2" set hint.fd.0.at="fdc0" set hint.fd.0.drive="0" set hint.fd.1.at="fdc0" set hint.fd.1.drive="1" set hint.ata.0.at="isa" set hint.ata.0.port="0x1F0" set hint.ata.0.irq="14" does the job. However, if some Forth guru shows me how to tftp download and parse /tftpboot/boot/device.hints, I'd be most grateful. -- Victor Sudakov, VAS4-RIPE, VAS47-RIPN sip:[EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
