Aieee! The dreaded 'attach returned 6'!!!!

Alas, you are not the only person to have had that problem with the
Acer Travelmate:

Which suggests that the problem is incompatability between the OS and
the hardware.  I've no idea if the poster of that message ever found a
solution.  And the other approach which often works when trying to
figure out recalcitrant laptops: hunting through the /Linux/ sites for
clues, that doesn't seem to turn up much useful, other than listing a
bunch of distro's that do or don't work with it.

I suggest you ask again on the freebsd-mobile at ... list.
