Hmmm, I guess I could install i386 but that kinda sorta
the purpose of having a amd64?  :)

Tried that, no luck.  It gets me past the newfs phase and
to untar the sets, but dies in various random points in

BTW, this is on a A8N5X nForce4 motherboard with 2GB RAM and
two 200+ GB S-ATA hard drives.

It apparently recognizes the apic device, but subsequently
about ioapic0 having been misconfigured as apic0, and change
it to apic2?

I'd love to post the dmesg during boot if it would help, but
get serial stuff working.

Anyone got any ideas on what else I might try?
