Tried install on naked virgin 36 gig SCSI drive.

The Install will complain about a lack of /dev/da0s1b


Try a ftp install using the 5.3-RC2 CD with a 'blank' SCSI drive.


Work around:

Insert a already formatted disk, one that has /dev/da0s1b.   Then /dev will
have the 'correct' entry and the install can proceed as 'normal'
