  Alright.  I've finally gotten around to stringing another cable, and it 
work as hoped.  When I boot from "net1", aka bge1, the kernel loads, but then
when I try to tell the kernel that the root device should be bge0 it tries to 
but my dhcp server never sees it, and it fails to continue.

  Does someone else have netbsd-6 running on bge devices successfully?  I
could certainly try a CD install if I thought it would yield different results, 
that itself would concern me.
