Please check the following link:

I am attempting to install FreeBSD from DVD 

Installing on a Dell PE-2950 with six 300Gb Hds installed via Perc5i Serial Attached SCSI. The controller has mirrored drives 0 & 1 creating virtual device mfid0.

I can boot the install CD and go through the process of install prep but once I answer the last question to begin the install I get the following error: "Unable to find device node for /dev/mfid0s1b..."

More details are in the forum on DaemonForums where I first asked.  

Please reply directly AND in the forum because I am not actually a member of this list.  Thanks!
