I've just installed DFBSD 1.6 on a PC with Foxconn 945G/P7MA mainboard with a serial ata II controller and a HD 80GB Seagate sata,
DragonFlyBSD detect the hd as pata with wrong cable (DMA33).

I can't find any references right now but I seem to recall that DF can
not recognize SATA-disks as such, instead they turn up like yours.
However they should still work fine and not be limited to DMA33 speeds.

Erik is correct; there is no need to worry.
