I have used OSBS 2 something beta... It ``works'' with one drive, and
it does find the other partitions on the second drive. However, I
can't make it work with my new IDE drive. I know, IDE, should use
SCSI... Well, I got a 2.5G IDE at a very good price. Probably lower
than cost, but not much.
What I see is that OSBS simply cannot overwrite the Windoze boot block
that Microsoft blindly places in sector 0. I don't know yet if this
is a problem with running the OSBS install under Windows, but I have
all the virus ``warning'' features disabled in the BIOS, so it's not
that at least.
I can drop OSBS2beta on an FTP site if needed.
