can't boot 5.1 CD

The AMD64 5.2 beta ISO worked fine. It seems very stable.
My problem was that all of the disk controllers I was trying
were not supported.
Is there a source tree I should track via CVSUP or whatever?
There seems to be an issue with the sysctl call. The x86 DNETC
binary actually runs until it gets an error from a sysctl call,
probably kern.ostype or kern.osrelease, and systat prints
an error message complaining
sysctl(hw.intrcnt...) failed: Cannot allocate memory
when the :vmstat command is given (at the next screen update).
Has anyone looked into this?

Please try the 5.2 Beta or RC1. A LOT has stablized since 5.1.
