I just spent two frustrating hours with the following problem:

Bought a new PC with Abit BE7 motherboard. Installed FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE
fine. After removing the install CD and rebooting, the boot procedure always
crashes when loading atkbd0.

I can get the exact crash message if anyone is interested.

Anyway, the workaround is to set the BIOS setting 'USB Keyboard support via:'
from default setting 'OS' to 'BIOS'. This setting can be found under 'Integrated
peripherials' menu.

I'm relieved.
