A friend of mine just added a 40GB drive to his NetBSD/i386 machine.
It is being recognized as below:

wd1 at pciide0 channel 1 drive 0: <Maxtor 54098U8>
wd1: drive supports 16-sector pio transfers, lba addressing
wd1: 32253MB, 16383 cyl, 16 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 66055248 sectors
wd1: 32-bit data port
wd1: drive supports PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2, Ultra-DMA mode 4
wd1(pciide0:1:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 2 (using DMA data transfers)

Based on the Maxtor part number (54098U8) this is a 40.9GB drive, which
should be quite a bit bigger than 32253MB. :-)

This machine is running 1.4.3_ALPHA, is likely to be resolved in 1.5?
