well i just followed the handbook and created sda1 = swap and sda2 = ext3 = /

does this mean im wasting my time on this very slloooow install and
that its not even going to boot when im finished? or does the boot
loader see ext3 as well?

also i thought that it saw all my drives, but the bios ( or what alpha
calls a bios ) see's all 3 9gig drives, but gentoo only see's sda,
when i went looking in /dev/ it only has the nods for sda and sda1 and
sda2 for some reason, i found a tips and tricks on the gentoo.org
website on how to make raid nods, but that didnt seem to work for sdb
and sdc.  is this normal for alpha to only see the first drive? is
there a way to make the nods to actually make use of the other drives
in the system?

thanks

nick
