You need to do two things: first of all, build yourself a custom
kernel with your boot drive da0, and any other fixed disks you mount
partitions from wired down -- that means the device will always appear
at a fixed bus, target and LUN whenever you reboot.  See the section
on 'SCSI DEVICE CONFIGURATION' in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT

Secondly, create the device nodes you need --- you get da0, da1, da2
and da3 by default.  You need to run:

    # cd /dev
    # ./MAKEDEV da4

This should create /dev/da4, /dev/da4s1, /dev/da4s1a ... /dev/da4s1h
amongst others.
