Hello and a small problem with 8.0-RELEASE (amd64)

Hello, freebsd-stable folks!
I sincerely hope I am in the correct place to inquire about a small
problem I am having implementing FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE on my AMD Athlon-64
machine. This machine runs FreeBSD 7.2 (amd64 version) without the
slightest problem; but when I attempt to load 8.0 onto the machine, I
can't even get sysinstall to put the kernel on to boot it. Attempting to
compile and install the 8.0 kernel from source code results in a kernel
which locks up at boot time after emitting a message stating "attempting
to mount volumes"; a reboot of this system results in a bootloader
prompt and an error message stating that no bootable kernel can be found.
Any ideas? Thank You!

Any ideas as to how to get the 8.0-RELEASE running on my amd64 machine
would be appreciated greatly. If I need to ask elsewhere, please
Thank You again,
