Try downloading and booting the livefs environment (I think you need cd1
and the livefs cd or just the DVD) and see if you can mount it from
that, if not it could be a controller issue. If you can then its
probably your OS/kernel but at least you now have access to your
data/configs etc etc not to mention you could try extracting the GENERIC
kernel from the install media (use the script in the kernels
