cam-disk.so

Provide a common access method for hard disks

Syntax:

driver ... disk disk_options ... &

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:

driver
One of the devb-* drivers.

The disk options control the driver's interface to cam-disk.so. If specified, they must follow the disk keyword:

name=prefix
Specify the device prefix (default: hd);
nobios
Don't use the geometry from BIOS int 13. By default, if you don't specify the translation option, the BIOS geometry is used.
noptab
Don't use the geometry from the partition table. The geometry from the partition table is used if you specify the nobios option, or the BIOS geometry is invalid.
translation=heads[:sectors[:path_ID[:target[:lun]]]]
Specify the geometry explicitly; this overrides the geometry from the BIOS and the partition table. The arguments are:
