Now that made me just notice something interesting, my software mirror 
running on the internal SATA disks that contain the Operating System on 
this server is using the ahci driver but the external SATA drive isn't 
guess I am going to have to reboot tonight and check and see if 
something is set on the controllers BIOS that keeps it from running 
AHCI.

Just an FYI, the server is running entirely on commodity PC hardware, 
as this is my home web server.  Though its running all well known major 
brands for hardware.  It is running FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE-P3, upgraded a 
few times via source from an original install of 8.2 on this hardware.
