There is support although it's a bit "funky", where is your cdrom

first IDE cable slave?
second cable master?

try moving it around, some ATAPI cdroms are so uncompliant with
the spec that FreeBSD does have a rough time locating and using them...

you should be able to move it back to its original place on the IDE
bus when you are done with the install.

oh, and just a question, you're not disabling the IDE controllers
in the kernel config on bootup are you? (don't do that)

best of luck,
