No. Self built. Mboard = epox PP6NF (award bios, version is 4.51g I
think)

No problems with anything (including obsd 2.2 booted via lilo) when I
used a 2.5G seagate HD (which had 621c/128h/63s bios, from 4970c/16 h/63
s drive)

done.

I also did this (from linux):
dd if=/dev/hda4 of=hda4.txt bs=8k count=1

to see if the PBR of the obsd partition is ok, but it gives all 0's for
the first 512 b, then:

etc.

The first 512 b should be biosboot (with a few changes for the file
positions and minus the first 32 bytes and the rest at the end) right?
