Issues (network, drive) with NetBSD5.0.1/amd64 as HVM guest

Hi all,

I tried to fire up one of my domUs as an HVM.

I ran into the expected issues with network timeouts on re0, but poked
at the other models:
e1000: detects as wm0, but fails to probe mac address, thus not configured
e100: detects as fxp0, but fails to detect EEPROM size (also wrong mac address)
ne2k_pci, pcnet: were 10baseT-FDX, probed, but not tested ne0?, pcn0)

(anyone know what the actual model is for the re0?  I got it by not
specifying a model= line.  Any I missed?)

The big fatal problem I ran into was the non-ability to use the second
drive.  I just got hit with timeouts.  It would disklabel but not

Anyone else see this?  Did I just do something stupid?
