Issues with disk layout (different from -stable)?

I'm trying to bring up -current on my new IBM ThinkPad T40. Once I specified
hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range, the snapshot CD booted up cleanly.
The current problem:
Sysinstall claims the disk layout as provided by BIOS is bogus (it's something
like 100000/32/32). It provides its own, newfs works clean, but writes fail on
the 1st package read from CD. I tried another alternative layout (the drive is
a IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 80GN) but get the same result. As an experiment, I
booted from a 4.8 CD, and it just accepted the provided layout and installed
without any problems.
Thanks in advance,
