Default Trouble booting if USB drive attached

I'm running FreeBSD 7.0 on my server and I backup to a USB drive every night. I have a problem that if I reboot the kernel detects the USB drive first and tries to mount all the partitions/slices off it and that doesn't work.

I'm using a 3ware raid card configured as a RAID 5 in hardware. FreeBSD sees this as one device called /dev/da0s1, this is also the same devices that USBs use.

Is there a way to mount my system UFS2 drive/slices using UUIDs or Labels instead so that this problem will go away?
