Looks like devfs is configured to not show the partitions. Damn.  Try running
`devfs 'rule add path * unhide'` as root to make all possible device nodes
show up. Then look again for partitions on ada; `ls /dev/ada*`

What output does `gpart show` produce? It should give you all the partitions
on all available drives.
