	FWIW, there's also a drive mode page that controls the 
auto-level and acoustic bits on the drive. On my seagate you can pick 
between: Quiet, Balanced, and Performance. They do default to quiet IIRC.

I'm trying to port NetBSD to my cup of tea, but it keeps kernel panicking 
on refill. This is odd, because I ported it to my toaster and my bookcase 
easily enough and it survives bread- and book-replacement fine.

Any hints?
