BOOT Failure 5.4

I'm running FreeBSD on a CompaQ PL5000. I installed 5.3 which worked ok,
I then CVSup'd to using RELENG_5 tag. After buildworld and build kernel
the system fails to reboot. As far as I can tell, it is trying to load
GEOM which fails to find any drives. I end up at a prompt - mountroot>
using the ? option for a list of valid boot devices only lists the cd
and floppy disk.

How can I stop GEOM from loading, is there an option in the kernel conf
file or do I need to put something in loader.conf?
