Dell R210 "no disks found"

I am attempting to install FreeBSD 8.2 amd64 from a CD onto a Dell
R210 server.  When I boot and run fdisk from sysinstall (under
"Custom"), it tells me "No disks found!" and then points me to the
hardware guide.  Nothing in the hardware guide really seems to apply.

Any one else get FreeBSD installed on an R210?  Is there a BIOS
setting that I need to check or something?  I've spent about a week on
this and will need to return both R210s soon if I can't get them
