I should have been more specific; I nuked the non-working 5.2-BETA, 
reinstalled 5.1 RELEASE and then upgraded to 5.2-BETA sources as of about 6 
hours ago.  

Something I forgot to mention in my last post; I commented out options SMP and 
options apic in the kernel.  Looks like everything is working though I 
haven't actually heard sound yet --I'm about 60 miles away from the laptop.  
If everything is actually working, I'll remove device pcm from the kernel on 
Monday and see what happens.
