I asked this question about FreeBSD 4.10 in stable and got replied that the 
twe driver in 4.x was not PAE safe. I checked the sys/conf/i386/PAE file in 
5-current and saw 'twe' was not mentioned as a 'nodevice' in that file. Is 
it true then FreeBSD 5-current's twe will work with PAE on (6G RAM)? If 
that is the case, that will solve my problem and I can upgrade that server 
to FreeBSD 5. If FreeBSD 5's twe will not work with PAE, is there any 
note/document/hint on what it take to get that to work? I got some 
experience in UNIX driver/disk controller and I was given the time to work 
on it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
