problem is caused by code shared by DF and FreeBSD 4.x, which has been
modified in FreeBSD 5.4 or earlier.
By the way, if one can comment me the following problem (sure it is all 
about the SATA-interface).
I've tried to install DF 1.2R on a machine with an nForce3 chipset and 
Samsung SATA HDD.
The problem is that the drive is not recognized at all. As one can guess 
attempts to change the BIOS settings had no effect.
The drive was installed as master on a single SATA-controller present.

There was an interesting fact with that machine: Samsung HUTIL (found on 
Samsung web cite) recognized attached
hardware in a following way:
ata0-master : no  drive
ata0-slave: no drive
ata1-master: no drive
ata1-slave:  CD-RW
[Samsung SATA150 SPxxxx]

Unfortunately, I can't now post all the diagnostic messages.

Sorry for my poor English.

Best regards!
