If you're talking about Compaq Presario R3000 you should take a first
look at http://blackk.union.edu/~black/freebsd/ and search the mail
archives. FYI I run 5.4 on HP-NX9105, which is quite similar to R3000.
These should do the magic (extras from the above URL):

Burn the cd and boot your machine from the cd.
Choose option (6), "Escape to loader prompt," from the menu.
At the loader prompt type in the following sequence: 
set hw.acpi.skip_timer_override="1" 
set hint.atkbd.0.flags="0x9"
set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"
