Howdy.

I'm attempting to install a second SCSI hard drive to my system (a Dell
P133, 32megs).  The new drive is a Quantum L912.  All I want is a single
slice that consumes the entire drive.

I've been wrestling with this problem for awhile now.  I've stepped through
the procedure as laid-out in the FreeBSD FAQ
(http://www.freebsd.org/FAQ/FAQ37.html#37), and when I go to install the new
filesystem on the drive (newfs /dev/rsd1s1) it craps out on me, complaining
about "newfs: /dev/rsd1s1: `1' partition is unavailable".

Mind you, I've tried everything I know to get something on partition one,
short of blood sacrifice.  And I'm a bit bummed that I haven't been able to
find a fixed version of "sysinstall" on the FreeBSD Web site (but maybe I'm
stupid?) Anyway, any pointers you could send my way would be swell.

Thanks.
