No real SCSI devices on my desktop; just the generic ones like cd, ses, etc. (In addition to those) just ahc on my server, but I don't think I'm going to go upgrading quite yet on my server because I don't want to kill one of my disk's functionality..

I do WITHOUT_MODULES=* just for speed and to reduce the amount of stuff that gets compiled with buildworld. I figure that everything important should be compiled statically into the kernel, but then again that's me, and since my server/desktop aren't production machines I can take them down whenever I need to modify the kernel.

Yeah, got that too.

I'll check on that again, but all I saw with an OHCI in it was the firewire stuff IIRC (something about Texas instruments, FWOHCI, etc).

Thanks :),
