Yes.  You use the arrow keys to highlight the drive, then hit
space to toggle the check.  (You can move the drives around to
determine their precedence, as well, but you have to hit ``-'' to
move one up and ``+'' to move one down.  Wacky.)

I don't know.  I've never really had the time to spend to figure
out everything that OMSA can or can't do.  If we're lucky, someone
else on the list who has had the time will tell us.  ;-)
