What do u mean by difference?

That page does not mention da devices at all.

The device ad represents a IDE/ATA disk and the da device represents a
SCSI disk. As you have got one IDE hard disk and one SCSI hard disk in
your box, its showing up as ad0 and da0. But as you say that there is
no SCSI in that box, then something seems to be wrong. Check your BIOS

displayed information such as

Note: DOS names would be worse than useless because I don't use DOS, and the
BIOS doesn't detect all my drives.

The website doesn't help.

I'm not on any list. Please respond by
a) Fixing the web page
b) Mailing me the necessary info (eg the fixed page when it's done) in case I
can't discover by other means which is which.
