I went back to this, using my USB boot device and edited /boot/loader.conf
to have hptrr_load="YES".  Still, no joy.

Also, I've been able to determine that I don't have a RocketRAID device. 
That's a separate RAID card, and I simply don't have one.  What I have is an
onboard NVIDIA NForce Storage Controller.  I'm befuddled as to why FreeBSD
thinks I have RocketRAID.
