Yes. I have got a Abit mainboard with BX chipset, too. There is a strange onboard HPT366 controller which makes my HDD appear as ad4. It also reports 56GB instead of 120GB, so it was not difficult to trust FreeBSD about the HDD-setting. I have no problems here so far. I have seen this message from your description while installing FreeBSD here, but I ignore it now.
