Would that be UFS1 with softupdates or UFS2 with softupdates? I don't think FreeBSD 4.8 understands UFS2. If you didn't specify UFS1 when you made the file system on FreeBSD 5.1, you got UFS2 format. Otherwise the disk should just move. (The MBR partition/slice table and the FreeBSD disk-label/partition-table formats are the same.) dan _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
