What version of FreeBSD are you running?
meddussa# uname -a
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE #0: Sun May
7 04:42:56 UTC 2006   root at

What is the output of:
ls /dev/ad1* 
meddussa# ls /dev/ad1
/dev/ad1	/dev/ads14

Also, what do you get with:
file - < /dev/ad1
meddussa# file - < /dev/ad1
/dev/stdin: x86 boot sector
