Look in /boot/kernel and see if atapikam.ko is there. It should be. If it is, 
you can use 'atapicam_load="YES"' in /boot/loader.conf to load atapicam at 
boot. You can use 'kldload atapicam.ko' to just load it while system is 
running to see if it works before going any further.

You can use kldstat to varify that it's loaded. Below is the output of kldstat 
from one of my systems:

# kldstat
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1   15 0xc0400000 5cae28   kernel
 2    1 0xc09cb000 59f4     snd_atiixp.ko
 3    2 0xc09d1000 22b88    sound.ko
 4    1 0xc09f4000 4ae8     atapicam.ko
 5    1 0xc09f9000 5a78     if_fwip.ko
 6    1 0xc09ff000 59f00    acpi.ko
 7    2 0xc4f2f000 16000    linux.ko
 8    1 0xc504a000 2000     rtc.ko

Hope this will help you guys a bit.
