Cannot seem to use nvidia-driver with xorg.  Errors are 2.
1)"NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory"
2)"nvidia0: rm_init_adapter() failed"
The nv driver works with no problem, and the nvidia-driver works with 
FreeBSD 5.2.1 20040222 with cvsup ports tree.  A7N266-VM motherboard, 
nforce1 chipset, realtek 8201 lan.
Enabling SMP in kernel forces disabling of ACPI.  Removing both SMP and 
APIC from kernel allows enabling of ACPI.
Having SMP in kernel and disabling APIC doesn't work.  Later snapshots, 
i.e. 20040524, I have been unable to gain stable state.
