Well, I read the errata.  Unfortunately, I am using GRUB as my boot
loader (this system runs win xp, linux, openbsd, and freebsd), which
doesn't support ufs2, so I have to boot FreeBSD 5+ indirectly using
grub's chainloading.  I am therefore unable to pass any kernel options,
and I don't have FreeBSD's boot loader installed, which I assume is
where you boot "safe mode" from.  

Is there any other way to turn off ACPI?

Thanks again,
Aaron
