Problem while installing FreeBSD 5.3 - ata0-master : FAILURE

This known problem cropped up on a brand new 1U system I installed
and nothing in the referred to errata appeared to help.
However, I finally got the group at freebsdmall to respond, and their
ideas did resolve this issue. Why does the info in the errata NOT work?
Two reasons: (1) I was using the loader.conf line with a "set"
as the first word, like this
set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" # This does NOT work
and (2), the variable I was told to use is NOT hint.acpi.0.disabled
but is in fact hint.apic.0.disabled.
I did read the section with the `apic' variable, but it did not
seem to apply, whereas the section about the `acpi' variable
did seem to apply.
So, the following two lines, exactly like this, worked for me in
my loader.conf, and I can now boot without safe mode:
No leading blanks, no use of the word "set", use of the variable
with `apic' in it (and not acpi). The unset does turn off `acpi'.
All is well now.
