well, its finally working!!

i could have swore this was the first thing i tried, as loader.conf was the 
first area i researched, but when i added acpi_load="YES" to loader.conf, my 
system now boots with acpi enabled (and i can now properly poweroff with 
shutdown -p now).

i must have typed or something, because that was the first thing i mentally 
marked as "ok, that didnt work".  im so excited to have my system functioning 
correcetly now, as my old system was a 1.8GHz athlong, and this is a 3.2GHz 
p4.  xorg/KDE compile time is down from 36 hours to less than 24!!

cheers,
jonathan
