   I have a similar setup, with OS/2 boot manager, W95 (not for long I hope )
and FreeBSD on the first SCSI disk, and FreeBSD 2.2.1 on the second one, also
SCSI. OS/2 b.m. would not let me add to its list any slice on the second hard
disk (?), so I resorted to installing _FreeBSD_ boot manager on both disks and
at least for me it works.
