Can't work out which disk we are booting from

I have installed freebsd 7.1 on a 8GB usb flash drive. Now, it seems
that the freebsd loader is unable to identify the usb disk where is
The loader runs fine from the stick but gets confused on the drive it
runs from, and the kernel it's not loaded.
Here is what the loader prints out:
Bios drive A: is disk0
Can't work out which disk we are booting from.
Guessed BIOS device 0x80 not found by probes, defaulting to disk0:
can't load 'kernel'
I installed grub too and grub is loading the freebsd loader just fine,
but the freebsd loader still get confused. Unfortunately I wasn't able
to load the kernel (/boot/kernel/kernel) directly from grub.
