Close, but no cigar. See the section on "SCSI DEVICE CONFIGURATION" in /usr/src/sys/conf/NOTES. What you want is: hint.scbus.0.at="ahc1" hint.scbus.1.at="ahc0" hint.da.0.at="scbus0" hint.da.0.target="0" hint.da.0.unit="0" which swaps the ordering of the SCSI busses, and wires down da0 to bus 0, target 0, LUN 0. You could probably get away with just the first two lines, as the rest should be the default anyhow.
