Hello all.

I am trying to install FreeBSD 5.3 onto a relatively old machine with 

a VIA VT6421 PCI RAID card. I am using this card so that I can access 

my new ATA 133 hard drive and my motherboard only supports ATA 33.

The card is detected by the bios, and the card detects the drive but 
the installer doesn't see the drive.

Note that I am not using the card for RAID - I only want to access 
one drive.

I am installing from 5.3-RELEASE-i386-miniinst.iso.

I hope somebody can help!
