 FYI... now might be a good time to pass it on to someone with more
 potential suggestions for resolving the issue.

 Hi Garrett,
 --> =A0 =A0Trying a more recent copy of 8-STABLE might also work, if there
 -->were any bugs fixed between the release and now.
 As I have said previously, I'm still groping my way around FreeBSD.
 However, as far as I can tell I have:
 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0downloaded the latest sources
 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0read differences
 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0built a loader with the latest sources
 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0tried the loader
 It still fails in the same old way.
 I guess that's the end of the line for me. I've done all that I'm
 prepared to do.
 I'm not prepared to disable devices in the BIOS, or do other vaguely
 defined activities that might lead to a root cause.
 Thank you for all your help.
