run "lsdev" to determine which bios device is your floppy (most likely disk0), then run "load disk0:/amr.ko". The loader will read ufs, msdos, cd9660, and ext2 filesystems, so you could load the module from any number of sources. I don't know if the megaraid controller will make your two disks visible to the host without you configuring them for hardware raid, though. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
