6.0 APCI Config & PMAP

How do I upgrade to 6-Stable... I ran sysinstall and did an upgrade, but
that left me back with 6.0-release. Do I need to do a 'make world', or is
there another upgrade method? Any references online? I've never done an
upgrade any other way than through sysinstall.

Moving to 6-STABLE should fix APCI. It's about the first thing I do. 
After that, no problems with APCI.
