hardware on my first FreeBSD server has crashed. i was planning on
swapping the HD into another machine, booting the generic kernel and then
custom tailoring it to the new machine specs.
however, i'm having a problem.
the new machine is using a promise ultra100 card. i don't have any issues
with this, because the drive seems to boot off the card fine, however, i
get into a problem with mounting the partitions.
the drive shows up as ad6
i've tried manually booting by entering 'mount ufs:/dev/ad6'
however that's not working. i figured that i wasn't telling it what slice
to use... so i tried adding s1a, etc after ad6, but still no luck. i
guess, i don't know the exact bootslice. 'lsdev' doesn't seem to help me
too much either.
is there anyway to salvage this system, or do i need to do a reinstall?
any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
