I use the Free BSD live CD, so some translation might be needed.  The 
FreeBSD command 'ata-ctl list' should be about the same as 'fdisk -l' as 
root for recognized hard drives.  My first thought is that your drive is 
/dev/sda not /dev/hda  But you can just get Chris's CD here, 
http://chrisbuechler.com/index.php?id=17 just to make sure it is not a 
linux thing.
