Default Adding wd4 to Samba

I have drives wd0-wd4 on my pc running openbsd 4.8 that i just installed.

i did fdisk -i wd1 on wd2 wd3
but when i try fdisk -i wd4 it tells me

fdisk: wd4: No such file or directory.

my bios shows 5 drives and the mother board has 6 sata ports. Any idea why these arent showing up.

During boot i get
disks: wd0+ wd1+ wd2 wd3 wd4*
boot>
so it seems that even openbsd recognizes all the drives

How do I get fdisk to recognize wd4?

Which drive is booting OpenBSD? Hint, look at the output of the following command:

$ mount

If you still have questions, post the output here enclosed in [code] & [/code] tags.

wd0 is my boot drive

mount gives me
the local drives
Code:
/dev/wd0a on / type ffs(local)
then all the devices on /wd0 (a-j)
/dev/wd1a on /drive1 type ffs (local)
/dev/wd2a on /drive2 type ffs (local)
/dev/wd3a on /drive3 type ffs (local)
where is wd4?

ill read about mount in the mean time

by default, MAKEDEV only makes four WD hardrive device sets. wd0-wd3.

Try:

# cd /dev
# sh MAKEDEV wd4

At that point, you should have device nodes for wd4.

Exactly what jggimi said, OpenBSD does not have a dynamic devfs.. /dev is just a directory full of device nodes on the root partition, additional nodes must be created manually.
