a couple of days ago I posted a question about the atapi.flp disk for the 
latest snapshot.  My question was that I had an IDE CDROM connected to 
the second IDE controller on a pentium motherboard and 2 hard disks on 
the first controller.  The second controller wasn't being detected so the 
CD wasn' detected either.  

I have managed to progress from here but still have some problems.  I 
moved teh second disk to the second controller and made the CD the second 
device on the first controller.  I don't have a BSD CD (yet) so the main 
point of the exercise was to see if I could detect the drive.  I now get 
the following messages during bootup with the atapi.flp disk:

wdc0: unit 1 (atapi): <CD420E/1.02>, removable, iordy
atapi0.1: unknown phase

the disk progresses through some more device probes as normal and goes to 
run init and then just hangs - just a blank screen with a non-blinking 
solid cursor in the bottom left-hand corner...

can anyone help ??
