Recently I aquired a fujitsu m2694- a rather oldish (94) 1 gig scsi2
drive. So, I thought, "Hey! What a great day! Now I can devote an entire
hard drive to 95, and another to FreeBSD rather than messing around,
guessing partition size." As it turns out, I have OSR2 w/ Fat32 on my
1.6 gig Maxtor (IDE), and FreeBSD 2.2.2. sort of installed on the
Fujitsu. Well, it is installed, I just can't boot to it! My scsi
controller is an Adaptec 1535 (the 1540 w/o the bios, essentially). Here
is the ominous message I get when trying to boot via floppy and entering
"1:sd(0,a)/kernel" at the "boot:" prompt:
(The Fujitsu is at SCSI id 0)

Error: D: 0x81 C:0 H:0 S:0

Am I going to need to relabel this sucker? Everything seems to have
installed ok (I've used the emergency shell w/ the 2nd cdrom to
check...)- I'd like to salvage this if possible.
I guess it doesn't help that I'm doing this at 11:45 pm. ;-)

Also, how can I get Booteasy (or a working boot manager!) onto my IDE
drive? I've run "bootinst" from the cdrom's tools directory- it updates
the mbr with Booteasy. The problem is that Booteasy doesn't label what
it finds- and only lets me go into windows95! (yuck)

So- how can I get a working FBSD setup on my SCSI disk, preserving as
much of my existing setup as possible.

TIA! Any help would really be appreciated since my past setups have been
rather straight forward compared to this.
