I downloaded the 5.3-BETA 1 ISO from ftp.freebsd.org, and try to install
in my laptop, an Acer Aspire 1605.
I try with ACPI, without it, with "hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range=1"
in loader.conf, with and without ACPI, and doesn't recognise the
ethernet, a Realtek RTL8139.
A linux system, with lilo option; noapic, run without any problem, and
can see the ethernet.
I attach to this e-mail my last conversation about this problem with M.
I'm very very worried about the impossibility to run FreeBSD, my great
favourite SO, in my laptop, and only run Linux... :-/
Thank you very much!!

BSD is what you get when a bunch of Unix hackers sit down to try to port
a Unix system to the PC. Linux is what you get when a bunch of PC
hackers sit down and try to write a Unix system for the PC
