When the system boots, it will use the boot manager from the first available disk, the other disks aren't even looked at.

You can:

a) Install the boot manager to the first partition, you can do this by booting the FreeBSD CD-ROM again and going to:
o Configure
o Fdisk
o Select ad0
o Press W
o Select Yes
o Select BootMgr

You should be done now ... Be sure to read the help messages/text, don't just mindlessly follow these instructions

b) Boot from the second hard disk (You can change this in your BIOS).

You also can install GAG (just google for it), it will allow you to boot FreeBSD with a minimum of hassle
