Unrelated to your symptoms, perhaps, but a copy of a Compaq SmartStart CD
appropriate for your vintage of server is useful, especially if you have
a Compaq RAID controller in the box.  The SmartStart CD can configure your
RAID and then (assuming its a Smart-2-something or SmartArray 3200) FreeBSD
should recognize the RAID controller and logical drives as the ida device
and disks idad0, idad1, etc.
