Talk:Partitioning Tips and Tricks
How can I have FreeBSD tell me what kind of hard drive I have (serial number, manufacturer, etc)?
to the best of my knowlege, you can't. That info is printed on the hard drive itself. So you'd have to look at it -- open the case and take the disk out and write down all that info. You can get the system to tell you what kind of disk you have (ATA/SCSI, etc) and how it's been configured, but that's as far as that goes.
