Well on my system I have to go through a two-stage boot with the boot manager:
1) boot to disk two and 2) to boot FreeBSD on disk two. I remember having
a one-stage boot once before where I just selected FreeBSD from the first
boot manager and it would start FreeBSD from the second drive. I tried
doing a fdisk -i on the second disk and couldn't get it to work, i.e. the
boot manager on the second drive was still there.
