Are you sure you're using amd64 and not i386?
% uname -a
FreeBSD 8.0-BETA2 #0 r196086: Sat Aug 8 17:22:29 CDT 2009 root at myhost:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC
% sysctl -a | grep hw.....mem
What motherboard/CPU? What does the BIOS report for memory? Let's see
the first part of dmesg from a verbose boot.
