Put a DVD in each of the drives, like so:

Case 1:
- Drive one populated.
- Drive two empty.

Case 2:
- Drive one empty.
- Drive two populated.

Case 3:
- Drive one populated.
- Drive two populated.

See what happens. I've run into issues with FreeBSD in the past with
some motherboards / drives / BIOSes where things were hung up unless I
put a DVD in my drive (or vice versa) because of cd(4)/cam(4).
