. ..when the SATA controller is active...
common since WIN_DIOTS redefined everything as "SCSI"
that did not have fur around the edges.......

In the 21320R BIOS, do you presently have the twin HDD defined
as a RAID0, a RAID1, JBOD, or as two independent drives?
If independent NOW, had they previously been defined otherwise?
- relevant configuration .pdf's downloadable from the page above.

Should be an *active* terminator - and probably is such.
Check also that the 'term power' mini-berg jumper on the
drives is removed. IBM ship it in-place IIRC. Postion 4?

That controller can be told to present a wide variety
of physical arrangements as a *different* wide
variety of *logical* arrangements.
Get into the BIOS and check what you have set.

What happens if you:
A) Disconnect the other HDD
B) Swap HDD channels (move cables at controller).
(Controller BIOS should complain).

LSI ship Slowlaris-specific drivers, also 2 for Linux, etc,
but listed none for the *BSD's.

The *BSD's do not list a driver specifically for the
LSI/AMI/Symbios/NCR 1030 chipset.
That does not mean it will not work with one of the
other existing drivers - there is a lot of commonality
in that family of chipsets.
I think some work in the RAID controller BIOS screen will
sort the issue.
