Thanks for your response...
Just to fill in some more details, this is an Intel DG33BU, part
of the Intel "Classic Series".
I can't paste a /var/run/dmesg.boot - because, I don't have one,
I'm trying to do an install...
It seems to be that the BIOS treats the ATA drives as C and D;
but after the kernel starts (after the boot) FreeBSD can't find them.
It does find the SATA drives.
I couldn't find anything in the BIOS regarding the drives except
to treat the SATA drives as "legacy" or not (whatever that means...)
