I have rtk0 (onboard ethernet, does not work--"watchdog timeout"
errors), ral0 (PCI linksys WMP54g v4.1), and ral1 (USB Linksys WUSB54G

NOTE: I'd like to fix rtk0 as well, as this machine may be my gateway.
 It works with GENERIC_LAPTOP on i386, but not on amd64--even with
ioapic disabled, ACPI enabled, ACPI_SCANPCI, and all of the *FIXUP

IMHO, there should be an install kernel available for amd64 which
includes the following:

acpi0   at mainbus0
# To enable or disable ... ?

# Maybe someday I can use the glorious hyperthreading
no options      MPBIOS
no ioapic*

I would like to use ioapic someday, as then I could use
hyperthreading.  However, if I enable it, my USB mouse does not work,
azalia0 output skips (sounds like IRQ conflict, brings back memories
of setting jumpers on my 8-bit soundblaster).

Sometimes I wish I still had to set jumpers for everything; at least
then it would all work!
