I had a similar effect here yesterday (but on CURRENT) and I 
noticed that something is wrong with the allocation of interrupts
for the PCI-bus (BIOS-settings). Perhaps you have same problem as

I figured out that on my Abit-BE6 Mainboard always assigns the same 
IRQ to the IDE-controller and the card in PCI-slot 3. It depended on 
how busy the card in slot 3 was. My TV-capture card even froze my PC
completely after starting xawtv in PCI-slot 3.

Check your device listing which comes right before the loader is
started. Perhaps you discover a second device using same IRQ or
DMA. Also check your BIOS settings.

I had to set my IRQ-numbers directly in my BIOS, because I need
to force it to use free interrupts that the BIOS doesn't want
to use. (Seems to be a bug in the BIOS program.)

I know I can choose PNP-OS in my BIOS settings, but I don't like
FreeBSD allocating 4 or 5 devices on IRQ 10.

If someone has got an idea how I can solve it, please tell me.
(BIOS is flashed to the most recent version.) I'm already
thinking about getting a new mainboard.
