I'm a little confused... I thought I had RELENG_5_4. "uname -a" says:
FreeBSD wlaptop 5.4-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE #1: Thu Oct 6 21:18:29
root at wlaptop:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/WLAPTOP i386
Isn't this RELENG_5_4?

I'll try that, it doens't sound too difficult. Just so I know, if I was
going to see a kernel panic message, I'd be seeing one before the
computer reboots, right?
Thank you again!
