I install FreeBSD 4.8 release and it work just like I wanted it too.
Install to the single hard disk drive on the Promise Ultra 66 controller
without problems. It appears to me that there is some sort of problem with
FreeBSD 5.1 release.
I did received some feed back off list, that it work for them but
they did install FreeBSD 5.1 on a hard disk drive that is boot from a
Promise Ultra 66 controller card.
If any one has any idea, please let me know.
