Hi all,

kimchi# uname -a
FreeBSD 5.2-BETA FreeBSD 5.2-BETA #4: Sun Nov 23 01:52:10 GMT 2003     bms at  i386

atacontrol doesn't report any devices. Using commands such as cap/info/list
don't yield anything at all.

Perhaps more worrying:-
kimchi# atacontrol mode 0
atacontrol: ioctl(ATAGMODE): Device not configured

The disk and cd themselves are present in dmesg during boot.
