So, part of the complexity is that your Promise controller offers both
SATA **and** PATA.
Well, the breakdown is this:
atapci0 = Promise FastTrak RAID
--> ata2 (SATA)
--> ad4 = Maxtor 6Y250M0
--> ata3 (SATA)
--> ata4 (PATA)
--> ad8 (master?) = Maxtor 6Y120P0
--> cd0 (slave?) = TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223F SB00
atapci1 = VIA 6420 SATA
--> ad10 = Seagate ST3300622AS
--> cd1 = LITE-ON DVD SOHD-167T 9S19
atapci2 = VIA 8237 ATA133
cd0 showing up attached to ata4 (somehow) is indicative of a problem.
It might also help if you could provide "atacontrol list" output. I
assume DFBSD has atacontrol.

Makes perfect sense.
