 Hmm.. fair enuff... anyway.. we are probabaly on different wave
 lengths but the FAQ (2.16) states...

To enable this, you'll need to edit the first device page mode,
which can be done on FreeBSD by giving the
command (as root)

 scsi -f /dev/rsd0c -m 1 -e -P 3

and changing the values of AWRE and ARRE from 0 to 1:- 

 AWRE (Auto Write Reallocation Enbld):  1
 ARRE (Auto Read Reallocation Enbld):  1

 I was suprised to fine neary every scsi drive on the machines
 i look after had these off :(  When one of my news disks on
 a ccd went down it caused me a lot of pain before i found this
 option and turned it on.

 Regards,
   Peter
