Hi, I already sent a message to hardware@, I'm hoping I might find a
response here

I have an Asus P4S-800D motherboard with SATA hard drives running from
a SiS 180/181 RAID Controller (VEN_1039 & DEV_0180, according to
Windows XP). They are not set to RAID mode however, it is merely a
RAID controllor taking charge of the SATA hard drives. My problem is
the following: when I enter 'sysinstall' and do a Standard Install,
freebsd does not detect any hard disks. According to the 'ata(4)' man
page, the SiS 180 controller is supported and I see the controller
detected/being loaded at boot time. I have links to other people
experiencing similar problems too:

 And a few others of which I lost the urls. I have also tried this on
both RELEASE of 6.3 and 7.0. Does anyone have any ideas?

 Thanks, much appreciated
