My 5-stable hangs. I use an ata drive (master0) and a dvd drive as
master1. Booting hangs probing the dvd-drive *ONLY* when it's empty.
When I put a CD in it (no matter what) the boot process just runs
smoothly (both ad0 and acd0 are seen ;-)
With 6.0R this no longer happens. The empty dvd-drive does not hang the
boot process any longer. What a relief ;-)
