I've tried nine different combinations (or so):
1) (The original)
The above were all done with the BIOS set to "no PnP OS installed".
Note that on #3, the system started spewing lost interrupt messages
on the viaide, and it didn't get to a spot where the filesystems were mounted.
Then I repeated 2 through 5 with the BIOS set to yes on the "PnP OS installed"
the sk ethernet didn't show up in any of the tests.
On the npx(4) piece, that isn't part of the GENERIC kernel in amd64,
though I see it in i386. I tried adding it to my amd64 kernel, but
the build failed with "unknown device" or something.
