When I booted from the install CD for the first time, the system froze right 
after my uhub devices were loaded.  I was able to install NetBSD by booting 
with ACPI disabled.

The problem continues after NetBSD is installed, so I'm just booting with ACPI 
disabled and things seem to be working fine.

I don't know if this is important, but I'm using Dell's BIOS version A10.
1. Get a Dell Latitude D531
2. Boot the NetBSD installation disc normally
3. Watch it freeze
Boot with ACPI disabled.
