If it was working normally before, and the only changed hardware was the
drive, then it sounds like something with this drive, specifically.

When you installed slackware, where did you install it on the disk?  i.e.
was it in the same 50G region as the previous install of DragonFly?

If you can get a dmesg out of the dragonfly install, that may help.

As a sanity check, are all the cables well-seated?

If you have another computer available, can you boot from your DragonFly
installation CD (not for installation, but just as a live cd) and see if
it works?

These are somewhat wild guesses; I don't think I'll have an answer - but
this may get us closer.
