I was extermely disapointed when I was able to reproduce the problem on known good hardware, as the unit i'm trying to put FreeBSD on is still under waranty.
I don't really know how to go about creating a reproducable enough problem that is simple enough to submit a bug report, so I supose my only option is to find another use for this machine. too bad, beacuse I can easily buy yese machines, which isn't always the case in a corporate environment. -- Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
