    hda: IBM-DTLA-307030, ATA DISK drive
    hdc: ST34312A, ATA DISK drive
    hda: 60036480 sectors (30739 MB) w/1916KiB Cache, CHS=3737/255/63, UDMA(66)
    hdc: 8420832 sectors (4311 MB) w/512KiB Cache, CHS=524/255/63, UDMA(33)

    /arc is logical volume on hda, /mobile is partition on hdc (mobile -
    becouse it's on disk in mobile rack ;)), so test is good.

    Soon I will test this on SCSI disk.
