Yes, the current code won't probe the second bus.  It's a known
shortcoming.  I know what needs to be done to fix it, but ragge has
told me that he's rewriting that whole section of configuration code
anyway.  So you can expect that to be fixed eventually...

It's possible that there's a hardware problem with the drive.  But it
might just be a bad disklabel...could you send the output of
"disklabel sd0"?

entropy -- it's not just a good idea, it's the second law.
