Hi All

Ok, I finally got around to upgrading to the latest -CURRENT around 7am 
UTC June 10.  I re-enabled the SiL 3114 in plain disk mode in the mb 
bios and booted.  There is one disk plugged into the mb SATA ports and 
2 still plugged in to the Promise controller I have been using.  (I 
also tried it with all 3 plugged into the mb).  On boot with the latest 
-CURRENT, the system no longer crashes.  However, even though the BIOS 
lists the disks correctly on POST, FreeBSD shows no SATA disks.  (I 
boot off a SCSI RAID array on an Adaptec 2200S).

Have others a working system with the SiL 2882 dual opteron boards 
running i386 -CURRENT?
