I just bought a hard drive and I need to add it to my already running
NetBSD-1.5.2. When I attempt to do anything, I find that the programs
(mbrlabel) complain about there being no disklabel. Doing research on
disklabel, it seems I need to edit the /etc/disktab file and add an entry
for my particular hard drive geometry.

Is there a more elegant program that will query the drive and generate a
proper disklabel? Or am I stuck with this method?
