Thanks a lot, John. How do I add miibus? Just as "device    miibus"? And
where? Just after entering the card or at the beginning?

Just one thing. I was making changes as I was writing my post. I
actually changed as:


#device		vga0	at isa?
device            pci1        # NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 64/64 pro (Ultra Vanta)
# splash screen/screen saver
pseudo-device	splash

# syscons is the default console driver, resembling an SCO console
device		sc0	at isa? flags 0x100


Is this all right, or as I showed it in my first post?

Thanks you for the time you have taken to reply.
