Hello I just purchased a new server and was installing FBSD.  It currently
has 2 internal harddrives which are working and mountable.  Additionally
there are 3 hotswappable hdds which are connected to a 3ware 9550sx-8LP raid
5/0 controller card.  Everything has been configured properly within the
controller's bios.  However, the controller is not detected during boot

I found out that the 'twa' drivers should take care of this, and after
consulting the online manpages I saw...  however it said FreeBSD 7.0 below
at the bottom of the online manpage...

     The *twa* driver supports the following SATA RAID controllers:

     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500S-4LP
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8MI
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12MI
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-4LP
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-8LP
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-12
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-12MI
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-16ML
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-4LP
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-8LP
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-12
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-12MI
     *·*         AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-16ML

The odd thing is that when I do man twa locally on the machine, this is all
I have on my list:

     o   AMCC's 3ware 9500S-4LP
     o   AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8
     o   AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8MI
     o   AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12
     o   AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12MI

Is this just what is supported for FreeBSD 6.0?

I tried loading the twa locally from the box and received the following

kldload twa
module_register: module pci/twa already exists!
Module pci/twa failed to register: 17
kldload: can't load twa: File exists

kldunload twa
kldunload: can't find file twa: No such file or directory

Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad4s1a

I don't know what else to do, does anyone know how to get this recognized?
I've spent all morning trying to get this figured out :/.
