Compaq Proliant 2500 - freebsd 5.1 install problems

  Sounds very similar to a problem that I have with FreeBSD 5.1.  As soon
as /stand/sysinstall is started, the display adaptor turns off!  This is
on a Dell Poweredge 6350 with 4xXeon 550s.  I never did get FreeBSD 5.x
working on any of the 6350s that I have, but 4.8 works perfectly.
