I too am having this problem with 6.0-release amd64. Posted about this in my Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D thread. Not sure if its the same problem as this gent is having. But a problem none-the-less.

--I'm a little worried by the number of reports of this.  Can you send 
--information on your motherboard, BIOS, and cdrom?

To add to a potential non-working amd64 database. Here is my specs as well. (Considering I'm not the only one.)

Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D
AMD64 3500+
1GB GeIL DDR 400
BIOS: Phoenix - Award WorkstationBIOS

Although I think a problem with mine might have been the ataraid module trying to load at boot, but I'm not sure and at this point, unable to retest the issue. 

Hope this helps,
Christopher Thomas
