Ok. I didnt get any further. Not sure if Im doing the correct thing.
1. I chose #6 from the boot menu
2. I entered "show" to see all the hints
3. I entered `set hint.ed.0.port="0x300"` (without the ``; see below
for why I did this)
4. I entered "show" again to verify the change
5. I entered "boot"
The dmesg goes by, and I didn't see ed0 load up. I scrolled back, and its
definately not in the list.
I tried continuing the install, and I dont have a choice to use ed0 in
the network setup,
to pull sources off the internet to install FBSD.
So Im not sure what is going on...
For the reason why I only modified ed0's hint port is because its the
different from what Im currently using (settings wise) under 4.10 (and
versions since 3.4 if I remember correctly).
