Hmmm.  Just as another data point, I committed heresy and
installed FreeBSD 6.1Beta4, using their boot-time option
to disable ACPI.  The install went to completion, although
there are other issues I have yet to debug (some problems
interacting with my USB-aware KVM switch).

Any chance of getting an equivalent option in NetBSD (to
disable ACPI)?
