This afternoon I installed an older 540 meg IDE drive I had lying around
in my pentium 120 system (it had been a freebsd boot disk for my 386
system, but I wanted to up my server capacity a bit, so.. :)  The drive
works fine -- it's been running for a few years on the 386, and running
freebsd at that.  It has some oddities -- one is that it's about the
1024 cylinder limit, but that should pose no problem on a realistic
operating system? That's what I thought ;).  Here's my disk config order
-- if anyone could point out where I made my error, I'd appreciate it a
lot.  I feel pretty silly -- I installed an 85 meg IDE hd in the same
system yesterday ;) (I swapped that out into the 386 to make up for the
loss of the 540 ;).  Yes, it's configured as a slave, etc.
