Thanks Phillip,

This would work if the OS was able to detect the disk. In this case, after I
boot the STABLE installation, i do not see any hard drive detected. With
this entry, I dont think it would boot since FreeBSD cannot see the disk. I
will give it a try and get back to you.


Of course, you might discount this possibility, but remember that one in
a million chances happen 99% of the time.
