ACPI is turned off. The install disc wouldn't even boot at all with it

Indeed, legacy support is enabled (actually "auto" was the setting in
the BIOS). When I disable it, the keyboard and mouse cease
functioning, as well. That was the only setting I could find in the
BIOS related to USB.

When I plug the drive into any of the USB ports on the system,
nothing happens in dmesg or /var/log/messages. camcontrol devlist
lists no devices.
I'm a bit confused as to why my USB keyboard and mouse function,
but my thumb drive will not.
It's likely that your BIOS has "legacy" support enabled in which
case, as far as FreeBSD is concerned, you actually have a regular
keyboard and mouse. That would explain why the mouse and keyboard
work while other USB items do not. From the messages you gave, it's
clear that FreeBSB is unable to connect to the USB controller.
Disabling legacy support in the BIOS may help. Otherwise check your
BIOS for other USB related settings and try changing those.
I suppose that means the on-board USB controller is one not supported
by existing drivers? Or at least ones not listed in the GENERIC
config on which I based my kernel (all I added was the ath drivers
for my wireless)? I don't know which chipset it is, but my guess is,
since the on-board video and LAN is an nVidia chipset, that the USB
controller probably is, as well.
Based on the error messages I think it's still worth trying some
different settings. FeeeBSD seems to recognize the controller but it
is unable to allocate the right resources to it. Check your BIOS for a
"PnP OS" setting and toggle it. Also, try booting with ACPI disabled
(or enabled) from the FreeBSD boot menu. IIRC, ACPI can have a hand in
I'll try the Plug-and-play OS setting. It's currently "on".
