Hitachi SCSI hard disk fdisk definition


I have recently acquired a new Hitachi 36G SCSI drive that is identified on bootup as:

Hitachi HUS15733EL3600 Size=34G Sync=160 Bus=16 HD0

It is not recognized by fdisk as a single drive under BSD 5.1 setup. It is recognized as da0 and da1, one of which contains 36G and the other contains 20G. The descriptions are as follows:

da0
2432 cylinders/255 heads/63 sectors = 39070080 sectors 19077MB

da1
4494 cylinders/255 heads/63 sectors = 72196110 sectors 35252 MB

Similarly, under Gentoo Linux 1.4 setup's fdisk two disks are identified (not one!): /dev/sda and /dev/sdb

What's going on here? How do I get one drive to be one drive on fdisk?

Thanks,

Bob

I did last night. No reply yet. BTW I tried for 2 weeks to get Gentoo 1.4 installed on the same drive and couldn't get grub to install on the MBR, do I haven't had a chance to try out Gentoo, which I really would like to do. I'm running Red Hat on other drives and grub installed just fined.
