Actually, the BIOS program does in fact show the disks (as C & D.) And 
I didn't skip the kernel configuration; rather, like a good newbie, I 
did as the FreeBSD Handbook (Chapter 2) suggested and selected visual 
mode and looked at the drivers--it showed no conflicts at all, 
actually, which sort of surprised me since everything I had read up to 
that point had suggested that a number of conflicts were to be 
expected...
