Have been trying to install FreeBSD 5.3 (i386) onto a barebones PC with:

Biostar iDEQ 210P Athlon 64 machine
Nforce3 250Gb chipset
K8NBP motherboard

It fails quite early in the installation with the following message:

Can't re-use a leaf (recvspace)!
Can't re-use a leaf (maxdgram)!

Kernel trap 12 with interrupts disabled

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode

current process             = 0 ()
trap number                 = 12
panic      : page fault

Looking through the mailing lists I can see there are compatability 
problems with the Nforce3 chipset but only relating to driver problems 
with the NIC and sound card.

Have also seen some issues with APCI and APIC so I disabled both from 
the BIOS but still got the same message.

Any ideas?
