Aha yee old ad/da confusion. FreeBSD changed its device names a few years ago 
away from what just about every other unix (including sister BSDs) uses and as I've 
said on the list before there is still inconsistency somewhere in the boot loader. Sorry I 
can't help but your problem rings a bell with me.
