FreeBSD/ppc 6.0-BETA1 isos

The last 6.0 ISO I tried would panic if I tried to disable syscons.   
As such, I have to plug a USB keyboard into my latop and also do the  
"skipslot" thingy to get it recognized instead of my bluetooth.

Does this one have any improvement in any of the above areas? :)
