Sounds like the FreeBSD kernel didn't detect your disk (controller).
Did you spot any kernel messages that would indicate that it found
your server's SCSI controller (and I just blindly assume you've got
SCSI disks in that server ;), or device da0 (first SCSI disk)?
Also, if that server has a spare PATA slot where you can fit in an
IDE<->CF adapter, you're probably better off using that instead of
