Interesting, i tried building a new kernel with sources that are only a few
days old (May 1) and it hands after something like 13 gray bars.  Do I also
need the latest version of perhaps?

On another note, is anyone else running beta 0 experiencing the keyboards 
problems?  Last night, I noticed (how could I miss it) that macbsd would 
seem to "forget" to read my keyboard.  After a few minutes (or if i
bothered to unplug the keyboard and plug it in) macbsd would begin reading it
fine.  Its very intermittent, and it seems to occur at random.  Once, it 
occurred when i typed ahead, just before getty got started, and another time
when i performing a large ftp transfer over SLIP.

I am using a slightly non standard keyboard.  It's a Datadesk International.
