I figured this out. Here was the problem:
I put a USB keychain drive on my box and F5 was pointing to that.
When I removed the USB device, F5 booted off my 3Ware card, as desired.
I am guessing that if I leave the USB drive in, redo boot0cfg on Drive
1, then my boot menu (on Drive 1) would have something like this:
F1: ?? (windoze)
F4: Drive 2 (USB drive)
F5: Drive 3 (3Ware RAID card)

>> 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 ;)
