FBSD 5.3 w/ Silicon Image SATA

You should be able to boot from one of the discs in the
array, thats what I did when the RAID 1 on one of my
servers dissappeared after an upgrade (not fun). Try
booting from ad4, thats what I did to get things back
on for the time being, no RAID at the moment I'm afraid.
I'm now using it as a ordinary two channel controller
while some scripts mirror the data until I get round to
replacing the card.
Just out of interest can anyone tell me why it was
decided that support for this card should be removed/
broken without warning (no UPDATING heads-up ?) it was
working perfectly for me :-(
I can only assume it was some very nasty data loss

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
ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
Root mount failed: 6
Any advice on how to make the system load?
