Please try a testbuild based on BETA5 that is currently uploading
to ftp-master. You will soon be able to find it
in /pub/FreeBSD/releases/alpha/ISO-IMAGES/6.0 on the various ftp mirror
MD5 (6.0-BETA5-EISA-bootonly.iso) = 71b32e9c03e972f53c5d1e879b9b3b65
I have boot tested it on a DS10 but I do not have any EISA equipped
Alpha boxes so I am really curious if Bernd's (ticso) suggestion
works for your machine model.
