both booted fine and scanned my system all looked well until
I got an error:

pciide0:0:0: lost interupt
"this repeats several times the from the output reads

This is a known problem with 1.5. There is a bug in the
wd driver where it does not properly reset the disk, so
it becomes unusable if that's the device you booted from.
You have two choices:
Try to netboot, or try the 20010114 snapshot. I think that
has that wd bug fixed.
