Dualbooting STABLE & CURRENT

I need some help dual booting STABLE & CURRENT. I have two SCSI disks
with:
STABLE taking the entire first disk (works fine)
CURRENT taking the first 1/3 of the second disk and
backup data taking the remaining 2/3 of the second disk.

I have installed CURRENT (at least 8 times) but I cannot get it to boot.
Choosing F1 on booteasy boots STABLE. Choosing F5 boots nothing but it
then shows an F2 entry for FreeBSD. I choose F2 and nothing happens. I
have tried boot easy on the first disk, the second disk, both disks and
nothing seems to work. I have tried making both slices making bootable and
every possible derivative I can think of. What am I missing here?
