Boot loader messed up - How do I fix?

I did a cvsup & made a new kernel & world on August 9th but now I can't
This was on my second drive. When I boot, I get this menu:
F2: FreeBSD (old, May 31st FreeBSD 6.0 CURRENT)
F5: Drive 2 (newer, Aug 9th FreeBSD - CURRENT)
F2 works fine. F5 _used_ to go to my other drive and boot FreeBSD just
fine. I have updated along the CURRENT branch many times, so I sort of
know what I am doing ;)
If I edit the fstab file on Drive 1 to mount only points on Drive 2, the
boot loader will load the kernel from the first drive, but then
everything else works fine on Drive 2.
Here are my questions:
Why is the boot code on Drive 1 unable to load the kernel on Drive 2?
How do I fix my computer to boot the kernel on Disk 2?
(Would changing my supfile to grab RELENG_6 resolve this problem?
I am trying that right now...)
