Description dhubbard1 1999-04-11 05:23:21 UTC
Using the newest Starbuck update, boot.img dated 4/7/99.  I
am finding the install program is incorrectly finding the
SCSI disk devices to partition.

The system has four scsi devices and no IDE on a Tekram
DC390F scsi adapter.

The devices are (scsi device names are from the kernel boot
messages):

/dev/sda1 - SCSI ID 0 - Seagate 4GB Barracuda Hard Disk
/dev/sda2 - SCSI ID 2 - Sony 100 MB MO Disk
/dev/sda3 - SCSI ID 4 - Seagate 4GB Barracuda Hard Disk
/dev/scd0 - Richo MP6201S CD/RW.

Both fdisk and disk druid only show the two hard drives
except they list the second hard drive as being 100MB and
attempts to fdisk the second drive actually end up affecting
the MO drive.

Reopen this bug if you are still seeing the same problem with the 6.1 release.
