I can't label the disk without getting the 'device not configured'. I just
rebuilt my device tree, so that can't be the problem. Again, here is what
the kernel spits out, so I think the device _is_ being configured:
sd0 at scsibus0 targ 0 lun 0: <CONNER, CP30540 545MB3.5, B0BC> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
sd0: 520MB, 2242 cyl, 6 head, 79 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 1065912 sectors
probe(esp0:4:0): max sync rate 10.00Mb/s
sd1 at scsibus0 targ 4 lun 0: <SEAGATE, ST15230N, 0638> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
sd1: 4095MB, 3992 cyl, 19 head, 110 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 8386733 sectors
sd0 works fine.
