fat32 question

When I mount a FAT32 fs, it is /dev/daXs1, where X is 0, 1, etc.

I would not expect to see /dev/da0.

>From my fstab file:

/dev/da0s1              /usb_flash      msdosfs rw,noauto       0       0
/dev/da1s1              /usb_flash2     msdosfs rw,noauto       0       0

FWIW, this is 10.0 STABLE.
