Is that right tho? I grabbed -release instead of -current, so I fetched
-current too. But neither finds pciide2 and 3 on boot (no drives

I went and grabbed the snapshot kernel instead as recommended by cyber
and sure enough it finds all 4 of them, but it seems to do disk access
rather slowly, and when I load emacs it freezes completely, and
repeatedly. And that is using boot drive on pciide0 still, normal 40 pin
ribbon cable.
