Boot failure - Recent Kernel(s)

I am running FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE with my last successful kernel build
of 11/1/07. I successfully have built two kernels, one a couple of weeks
ago and one just today but when I attempt to boot them the kernel isn't
able to identify my boot partition. I query the devices that the kernel
sees are an ad14 device(Which doesn't exist) and acd0.

My boot device is ad10s1 which the November 1st kernel finds without a

Filesystem                  1K-blocks      Used     Avail Capacity 
Mounted on
/dev/ad10s1a                   507630     93898    373122    20%    /

I am running a generic SMP kernel.

Any ideas on what the problem is?
