I have indeed disabled the name, not the number. I will try it later
on an external USB disk (I got for now FreeBSD6.2beta running (but
with no sound and using the Atheros WiFi card; )

I doubt there will be any difference, as the config file already has
'no npx on isa', but we'll see.

I was thinking more along the lines of compiling the ACPI tables in
the kernel with iasl etc., but could not find the exact model
definition (there was for nx6325, but not for 6310 - big difference as
the 6325 is AMD... I wonder if I could not use the FreeBSD running
system to work out these.
