Still no luck.  It now ID's as:

uk0 at scsibus0 targ 2 lun 0: <HP, C4324/C4325, 1.27> SCSI2 5/cdrom removable
uk0: unknown device

I know this drive works, because my friend made it work on a FreeBSD
system.  I know my SCSI controller works, because I've been using a tape
drive on it.

When you say you had to install it as a WORM drive, what exactly do you
mean?  I noticed that your flags are 4 instead of 5; is that it?  If so,
how does one go about changing this?  Is it device-specific?
