I made a DVD from the ISO and then it booted.  I had to destroy the
RAID array, unfortunately.  It looks 8-STABLE can see the disks as
/dev/da0 and /dev/da1, but it can't see the array.

My next issue is this:  I can use the DVD to install 8.2-RELEASE, but
not 8-STABLE.  However, 8.2-RELEASE can't boot, sinc eit doesn't have
the driver for the HDs.  Am I missing something?
