This is a Dell-manufactured, out-of-the-box machine (and the Windows XP
Pro that came on it works just fine, I guess).  There is only one drive,
and I'm not using any RAID.  The exact same configuration works under
-STABLE.  As I mentioned in a follow-up, I found a patch that may do the
trick for me.  I'm just about done with my custom 5.2.1-RELEASE, so I'll
know in a bit.

Thanks for following up, though.
