I removed the drive at SCSI ID 1 and double-checked the termination on 
the other drive.  Got the same results.  At no time when it triedmto 
label the disk did the disk activity light even blip.  Here's the output 
from my attempt this morning.

Labeling disk 22d0...sd0(ahc0:0:0): timed out
sd0(ahc0:0:0): timed out
sd0(ahc0:0:0): timed out
disklabel: /dev/rsd0d: Input/output error
Initializing root filesystem, and mounting...
sd0(ahc0:0:0): timed out

It then just sat there. for 15 minutes at which point I shut it off.  The 
disk has not been fdisked as this is a fresh machine with no dos 
partition and thus no dos adaptec drivers, which prevents fdisk frim even 
seeing the disk.  Does that make a difference?
