If anyone is interested, I have a FreeBSD 6 snapshot ISO with a custom
kernel that has PREEMPTION, SMP, and apic removed.  I've been trying to
get it to work on VirtualPC, but I'm running into other problems with it
now (mainly that VPC doesn't seem to expose the CDROM in a way that 
FreeBSD can find it).  If anyone is interested in testing it with
VMWare, let me know and I'll make it available.  It's a normal disc1
install ISO, based on 6-BETA3.
