After the RAID-cabinet has initialized the disks and I
issue the camcontrol rescan all the output is

da2 at ahc1 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da2: <SB-3140  0001> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-3 device

da2: 160.000MB/s transfers (80.000MHz, offset 31,
16bit), Tagged Queueing Enabled
da2: 764496MB (1565687808 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T

So it's allready at this stage that the (lower) size
is showing up. da1 has 267,348 cylinders and da2 only
has 97,459.

I'll probably replace the large disks with 200 GB ones

Thank you.
