If you have /dev/ada, it indicates that you haven't created a slice on those disks, instead you created one partition (a) on each of the disks. If you are a lazy guy (as I am), then use sysinstall to create the slices and the partition. Choose "standard MBR" after the slice editor and go ahead with the partition editor. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
