I'm trying to install beta5 (amd64) on a Dell 2850
with dual Nocona CPU @ 3.2 GHz and 4 GB RAM; Perc
4e/Di RAID-controller. It stops when it's probing the
IDE-CD (Teac).

Installing beta5 (amd64) on a Dell 1850 progressed
without any problems. This has an LSI-card
(mpt-driver). The amd64 port appears slightly faster
than it's i386-counterpart, so I'd like to install
amd64 on the 2850'er as well.

I'm able to boot beta4 and -5 (i386) without any
