IDE Devices and FreeBSD 7.2 Release Install

I just built a new computer with an ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo LGA 775 Intel P45
ATX Intel Motherboard and the install isn't seeing the IDE devices. I'm
using the AMD64 DVD to install the OS. The computer sees both the 120GB
IDE drive and the DVD drive, but FreeBSD only sees the six SATA drives
once it boots off the DVD and I start the standard install process. The
IDE HD and CD drives aren't seen.

Any suggestions?

Delenn, I have been working up a good mad all day and I 
am NOT about to let you ruin it by agreeing with me!
