Sorry - I cannot be much help there, I am just using files for my DATA
and LOG because I was more interested in making sure my data was not
just on my laptop.  I would imagine you would just use disklabel to
slice the disk up and then use the raw partitions (e.g. /dev/rwd0f,
/dev/rwd0g) but I am only guessing.

ad2?  you mean sd2 ... if so, aaaahhh a scsi disk, just do what I said
above but the raw partitions will start with /dev/rsd2

Thanks, I am glad it helped.  I wish I had more time to write more
about Coda (and other things).
