That's ok.  It is something I hope to tackle for DF.  Also need to fix
stuff on ISO 9660 and UDF, but I am digressing.

CURRENT's snap boot completely to the installation utility now.
Unfortunately, yesterday's SNAP fails with a page fault after I have
configured my xl0 interface, tried it twice, both times a page fault.
Now to check the day before yesterday.

Soren, what on earth could it be that allows 5.1 to probe the Maxtor
normally and yet have 4.9 fail with a READ command timeout?  5.1 btw
sees it as an UDMA133 drive and GEOM creates the disk node.
