:First of all, the installer looks fine.
:But I can not format the hard drive.
:newfs /dev/da1s1a times out, and the log reports
:'write error: 80
:->>> Exit status: 36'
:The CD boots from an ide cd-rw unit, and the target
:disk is a scsi disk, scsi id 1, attached to the mpt1 device.
:Is using scsi hard drives a known issue?

    No, it should work... run the 'dmesg' command (login as root on one
    of the other virtual consoles).
