i am at the first-boot via netbsd 7.1.1 using thumbdrive. i tried the "without acpi" option and the boot moved further than before. but, barfed again at "root device" (i think based on my limited recollection). i guess, if there be someone who i could mail the dmesg generated under linux would make it simpler and easier for this task. thanks.
