Ah-hah - that worked! The delay was me testing that booting from CD,
then upgrading my 8.2 w/ ZFS v28 system to 9.0-RC2 via freebsd-update,
including "debug.acpi.disabled=3Dhostres" in my `/boot/loader.conf`, and
completing the update (including performing a complete reinstall of all
ports using portmaster).
Thanks for the help, and is there anything I need to try to see what
needs to be fixed? Do you need information from this machine?
I'm keeping the second hard-drive clear right now just in case I need to
do some test installs.
