It should be.  Check to see if it's being detected at boot.
If you're having problems with -CURRENT, though, you really need to
use its mailing list to get help.  You really should be reading the
list if you're going to run -CURRENT anyway.  Admittedly, it's a lot
of mail, but that's just part of running the latest development code.

No.  In fact, SCSI emulation almost certainly won't detect the device
either if direct ATAPI support doesn't.
