Change detection order for firewire vs SCSI?

I have an old dual-P3 server with an internal SCSI backplane. I also
have an external firewire drive attached to it as cheap, 'disposable'
storage. It all works swimmingly apart from one thing: When the system
boots, it loads the kernel from the SCSI drive OK, then at some stage it
changes it's idea of what da0 is from the first SCSI drive to the
firewire one, and then fails to boot since there's no da0s1a on the
firewire drive. Unplugging the firewire drive and rebooting works, but
means it can't be done unattended, obviously.
Is there any way to stop or change this behaviour? I couldn't see
anything in the sbp(4) manpage...
I'm running FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE, in case it's relevant.
Thanks for any pointers.
