Just for giggles, instead of booting with the default, I booted with
ACPI and SMP turned off - the network card is working.
If I boot with just ACPI turned off (SMP on), the kernel drops into the
debugger. The error message is "... mode transition failed.\nCould not
exit ACPI mode to legacy mode."

Is there a chance that this is going to fix the VIA VGE0 problem I'm
seeing on the new MServ S2100 motherboard?
No. I'd guess interrupt issues.
If I boot with just SMP turned off (ACPI on), the kernel boots but the
vge0 port is dead.
There is only the one CPU, so booting with SMP turned off would make
sense for me, but isn't there a bug here? As always, I'll be glad to
help, I just need to know what you need me to do next (if anything).
The classic advice "If it hurts, don't do that" is fine in the short
term. I'm booting with both turned off and I don't expect that to be a
problem, but I thought you guys would like to know.
