Likely so: OpenSolaris was complaining just as much about ACPI errors;
the `messages' file there was growing at enormous rate, and in
addition the boot option to disable ACPI didn't work -- one of the
reasons I decided to scrap it off the disk and try NetBSD.

(If it helps, I can try installing FreeBSD/i386: that actually booted
-- I had tried a 8.0 pre-release I had already on a memory stick. I
wanted (why? don't know) amd64, and retried, unsuccessfully, with a
new, FreeBSD/amd64 8-CURRENT, image on the stick.)
