System: FreeBSD garak.mavetju 5.4

says (at the bottom):

	3.  Reattach the disk as a spare:
	    # atacontrol attach 3
	    Master:  ad6 <MAXTOR 6L080J4/A93.0500> ATA/ATAPI rev 5
	    Slave:   no device present

Trying that command, it complains that:
	garak# atacontrol attach 3
	atacontrol: ioctl(ATAATTACH): File exists

The right command was:
	garak# atacontrol addspare ar0 ad6

Of course, I could be totally wrong about this, but it works for
me (on 5.4). Thanks to Darius@#thatircchannel for his help.
