FBSD 5.3 w/ Silicon Image SATA

I have a Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe with a Silicon Image Sil 3112a controller. 
I was able to create the ar0 device while loading the OS but cannot boot 
off the resulting load (the image is mirrored on both drives). The ar0 
device does not appear in the kernel messages. The error I get is:

    Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ar0s1a
    setrootbyname failed
    ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
    Root mount failed: 6

Any advice on how to make the system load?
