ltmdm broken for 5.2-CURRENT any solution?

I think I'll give that I try.  The odd thing is that after the June 11 cvsup and build of 5.2-CURRENT, the ltmdm.ko kernel module paniced the system and crashed into the debugger.  I was watching cvs for an update to the driver, and I saw one on June 17th to both the Makefile and a patch-ac file, that carries instructions for OS > 5.x.
Of course, last night my FreeBSD HD started making unusal sounds and on reboot today, the BIOS only sees a 2 Gig drive where there should be a 20.  Im downloading the June 18 snapshot right now and I'm going to install on a brand new HD.
Thanks for the input, it will be kind of interesting to see if ltmdm will install on the fresh drive and OS.  I suppose perhaps there may have been some underlying hardware issues before the drive started to howl.
Thanks again,
Tim Kellers

	Try rolling back to an earlier date of ltmdm.  I know that cvs can
	do this, though I haven't done it in years.  If all else fails, I can
	send you a tarball.  The one on this machine is dated April 1, and I know
	that my laptop that uses it was done since that time (but currently
	is waiting to go back to ibm with a bad disk).
