Hello and a small problem with 8.0-RELEASE

Hello, freebsd-bugs folks!

     I sincerely hope I am in the correct place to inquire about a small
problem I am having implementing FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE on my AMD Athlon-64
machine. This machine runs FreeBSD 7.2 (amd64 version) without the
slightest problem; but when I attempt to load 8.0 onto the machine, I
can't even get sysinstall to put the kernel on to boot it. Attempting to
compile and install the 8.0 kernel from source code results in a kernel
which locks up at boot time after emitting a message stating "attempting
to mount volumes"; a reboot of this system results in a bootloader
prompt and an error message stating that no bootable kernel can be found.

     Any ideas? Thank You!
