Tried the "obvious" -- manually loading acpi.ko -- still fails

Failed workaround:

  1) Create floppies using dd
  2) Make another copy of the mfsroot floopy, 
     mount /dev/fd0 /mnt
     rm -rf /mnt/*
     mkdir -p /mnt/boot/kernel

     copy acpi.ko to /mnt/boot/kernel

     ### Note that copying to root of floppy fails on load attempt ###
     ### This is inconsistent with the loader (8) manpage in 5.0   ###

     umount /mnt

  3) Boot from kern.flp
  4) Load mfsroot.flp
  5) Interrupt boot process

     set hw.pcic.intr_path=1
     set hw.pcic.irq=0

  6) Remove mfsroot.flp, insert 'acpi.ko.flp'

     load acpi.ko

     ('boot'ing here causes the BTX to halt if the acpi.ko.flp is still 
      in the drive)

  7) Remove acpi.ko.flp, insert mfsroot.flp


     ...and watch the BTX halt
