Well, is there a way to say something like this:

bfd /boot/vmlinux.gz root=/dev/wd0a

Because when I try booting my Qube2 with two drives hooked up, it wants 
to put root on /dev/wd1a (the slave device), and I don't have that drive 
fully setup for booting yet...

I'm about to resort to swapping slave and master just to finish 
configuring the 2nd drive, which I plan to put into another Qube2 when 
I'm finished.

Also, has anyone tried physically mounting a 2nd drive into a Qube2.  
Looks like a real tight fit, and I'm beginning to think that it might be 
easier to just buy a new, big, drive.
