"scsibus" is the device representing the bus, not invidual devices.
Please read "man 4 scsibus" for more information.

You will have to fix your kernel configuration:

        scsibus0 target 0 lun 0: <iomega, jaz 1GB, J.86> disk removable not 

It looks like you commented out at least this line ...

        sd*     at scsibus? target ? lun ?      # SCSI disk drives

With a correct kernel configuration the Jazz drive should be configured
as "sd0". Please use "disklabel sd0" afterwards to determine the
partitions on the drive.

        Kind regards
