The little light bulb popped into my brain last night ;-) and I realized
I had some kind of ancient Dell box piled in my own personal archives. I
dug it out this morning - it is an Optiplex GX1 550Mbr+ and when I
booted with the same FreeBSD-6.0-RELEASE-i386 CD it found the hard drive
without a problem. I don't know enough about Dell to know if there are
any architecture differences among GX1's but it wouldn't surprise me.
Now that my brain is awake again, I recall we do have a few other GX1's
sitting in the lab and I can probably swap RAM and hard drives and what
not, if I get a few spare moments next week.

I'll let you all know what I find out.
