 After many iterations of both FreeBSD installs, and Fedora installs
 (none successful), I have returned my two HP DL320 G4's to HP.  I have
 since ordered DL320 G3's.  I have three running 6.x-stable right now,
 with no problems, so the new servers should run FreeBSD without the hassles.
 I'm not sure what was different, other than the dual core processors.
