Hmm. I'm not seeing any change. I removed the sio2 and sio3 entries and eliminated the other "unknowns", but pci0 is still not getting found. > > Note that my fxp0 is using irq 10.

Did it, no pcm0 (or even pcm*) in dmesg or /dev. sndstat tells me the following: # cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed devices: And nothing else. > To get the PCI card correctly recognized, you may need to play with the > "PNP BIOS" setting in your BIOS configuration, although I don't think > that's your problem in this case. The bios setting doesn't really give any options with PNP stuff.

Well, not really, but that's probably more a reflection on me than you :) I sincerely appreciate your input, but I think this has just gone past my pain threshold, which gets lower with each passing day - I ordered a new Dell Shortly after posting the request, and it should be coming in about 10 days now <happydance!>. This system will probably be retired for awhile until I can get the space to make use of it some other way. Thanks again Bob.
