Hi all,

With the help of scyld I was finally able to get my hard drives configured and
now they slaves are booting off of the hard drives BUT, they only come up in the
unavailable state.  Any ideas why this would be happening.  I did modify the
/etc/beowulf/fstab from the floppy boot to the hda boot see below but I've
modified nothing else.

#/dev/ram3       /       ext2    fs_size=65536   0       0
/dev/hda1       beoboot         ext2    defaults        0 0
/dev/hda2       swap            swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3       /               ext2    defaults        0 0
none            /proc           proc    defaults        0 0
none            /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
$MASTER:/home   /home           nfs     defaults        0 0
