PowerApp 120/1550 Install problems

I'm trying to install FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE on a Dell PowerApp 120
(1550) I just purchased. The system claims to have an AIC 7899 SCSI
host adapter. I've currently got a known-good 9GB Fujitsu hard disk
in the system, as ID 0. During installation, the disk comes up as
da0. After going through all the options for install, etc, I get an
error when it tries to write the file systems:
"Unable to find device node for /dev/da0s1b in /dev!" and mentions
that installation is aborting. At first I thought it was a problem
with the SCSI backplane, but RHEL and Window 2000 Server both install
and operate without problems.
Thanks for your advice!
