Thanks to the people who responded to my recent post regarding the 
failed boot, etc.   It ended up being a bad SCSI LVD cable. 

During this time, and while researching the net for different solutions, 
I'm surprised there isn't a "FreeBSD Disaster Recovery Guide" of 
sorts.   Not in the Handbook, not in any of the FreeBSD books I have 
(very shocking).   If I've missed a page out there, by all means let me 

Other than that, I think it would be a good idea to put something like 
this in the Handbook or somewhere conspicuous.   There are tools like 
OpenBSD's scan_ffs and others that could literally save a system.   
Techniques, diagnosis, tests...

Anyone agree here?
