I have tried to install FreeBSD 8.1 Release for amd64 on my 13.3" Unibody 
MacBook with Core2Duo.
When I boot the install CD, it starts printing hardware information and appears 
to freeze at:
acpi0: <APPLE Apple00> on motherboard
Boot the Installation CD 
 on an 13.3" Aluminum MacBook (newer models are now named MacBook Pro). My 
MacBook is has a nVidia GPU and an Intel Core2Duo Processor with 2Ghz.
It seems like other Users already had the same Problem:

The MacBook Wiki (http://wiki.freebsd.org/AppleMacbook) provides a solution:
If your system stops early at boot, try reverting r189055: 

But how can someone revert this revision if he has no PC running FreeBSD?
And i don't know if this is the final solution.
