I'm afraid I don't quite understand how that desribes the fix to my 
problem (Freezing on boot after having probed a non-existant vga1 and 
sc1).  What I did do, I went into sys/dev/fb/vga.c and commented out 
the second vga head detection.  Works beautifully now, though it 
would be better to actually figure out why it was finding another vga 
card.  Still, it's up and running.

Now, if I could just figure out why ppp doesn't work (keeps complaining about
"tun0: Warning: Add route failed: errno: Network is unreachable",
dials, and then sits and does nothing.)
