Can you give some specific examples, like the actual commands you are
issuing and the actual error? Are your disks being detected at boot?
You can check for them by greping the output of dmesg like so:
# dmesg | egrep "^ad|acd"
Also, you reference your disk as "hdd1", which is the Linux nomenclature
for secondary slave partition 1. In FreeBSD it would be "ad3s1" and
your CDROM would be "acd(N)", depending on it actual physical location.
