'Quick and dirty' - go ahead and attach the old drive to the new
controller that is ID'ing as the matching ad/~ (if you can do..)
Pls e-mail me model-specific info.
Also - if you can - *before* OS boot starts, try to freeze the POST
screen of the machine and get me the info about card ID codes and INT /
IRQ assignment at that point. Compare those with dmesg, 'coz OS/2 and
the *BSD's have their own probes and can disagree with BIOS.
Likewise BIOS settings - i.e. do you have these set to what *is* or
'AUTO' and 'search other drives'. And if auto, what is is finding?
I hope there's a way because I really need those disks badly. :|
Been there - you may have to juggle some cards to have somthing like a
NIC grab an assignment before the new card get to pick and choose. Sure
miss DIP switches...
Worst case - modify boot record and fstab.... but *not yet*...
I'll be online for another hour or so...
I solved it by just putting ad8 instead of ad4 in my fstab and creating
the necessary entries in /dev. Sorry for the noise.
