i have the k8v deluxe (not the SE board).  it has the sk interface and ive had no issues with it.  im running 5.2 current (amd64).  ive downloaded large iso's, used cvsup (source and ports), installed ports/packages from the net without any problems.  
not near the machine so i dont recall the bios ver...
by the way, great job with amd64.  onboard usb works, firewire works, onboard sound works, will be trying the promise sata controller next week.  ive looked in the archives and folks have had issues with burning cd's and other problems, i havent seen any yet.  ive only had a problem with kde (3.2.3) -- konqueror crashing sometimes (havent looked into it too much yet)...

I have problems with my sk0 on an Asus K8V SE Deluxe board:

skc0: port 0xb000-0xb0ff mem

skc0: Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adapter

e1000phy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseTX-FDX,

It's built in to the board.
Running 5.2.1, or CURRENT from today, the interface stops if you
use CVSUP or NFS after a few seconds. If you ifconfig down it a 
few times, then bring it back up, it will be working again for a 
few seconds. 

FTP downloading doesn't cause it tho, strangely (I got bored after
downloading about 10Gb).

It seems I'm not alone in this:

Anyone got any ideas where to start looking? ACPI and APIC enabled
or disabled makes no difference. I've also put the newest BIOS
available on. Switch on the other end is a Summit Extreme 48.

Many thanks
