When I install FreeBSD 7.2 on Mac mini (PowerPC) with 320G disk. The installer cannot find the disk. Does anyone have solutions?

Yes, I had this probelem on my G4 powerbook, and I partially solved it by booting from the Ubuntu 6.10 ppc disk and using gparted to format the disk.
Hope this helps :)

boot a live cd and do your partitioning outside FreeBSD. happens on the latest ICH version as well (need to configure S-ATA in compatibility mode in the BIOS settings)
