FreeBSD doesn't recognize my hard drive

Hello everyone,

I'm having an odd problem. I have an old P2 box with two harddrives. 
Both of them are detected fine in the BIOS, and they are both listed at 
boot up, when it lists the BIOS drives. After that, there is no mention 
of the second drive in the boot messages, and there isn't a device 
listed for it in /dev.

I don't know what's going on. Both drives worked find under Linux, and 
it seems like FreeBSD sort of knows about this drive. Any ideas on what 
I can do to track down the problem?
