on my home computer, i was mounting a second ide hdd using this line in my fstab
/dev/ad1c /mnt/drive2 ufs rw 1 1
i tried to boot the machine today, it hung while trying to mount /dev/ad1c. i tried fsck, it couldn't read the drive. only way i could get the machine to boot was to uncomment the above fstab line.
when i run dmesg, it shows me ad0 but not ad1. i try to run 'fdisk /dev/ad1' or 'fdisk /dev/ad1c' and i get the message 'device not configured'
did this drive just die on me? any tips on how to recover?
