well, i could not read the stuff when doing boot -v, but i did it with no 
acpi, and i attached the dmesg..also, when i do do the boot with acpi and 
-v, the last line i get is :

lo0: bpf attached

there is no error i can see..just that the boot freezes (with the 
Timecounters stuff as the last 2 lines)..
i hope this helps a bit.if there was a way to scroll back up during boot so 
i could see if there were any errors, it would be nice.i tried every key
