 BTW we have also successfully booted the 
'offending box' with FC4 and it all came up ok.
This should rule out hardware issues I hope.

Is there a way to force a (re)scan of the other PCI
busses ??

Or is there a hint.??? line I can add?

OK -- at present I cannot get a 6.2 install disk
to get anywhere further.

Trying FreeSBIE 2.0.1  (aka 6.2) I can get a boot

set hint.acpi.0.disabled=1
set acpi_load=NO
boot -v

However it doesnt find the bge card nor has it found
an fxp card we have tried, so I cant get to dmesg output 
off the machine....

What i have seen is that the ServeRAID 8i controller 
say it is on PCI bus 1:2:0

Nowhere in the boot log is pcib1 or any mention of
the physical pci bus 1

Just to test I booted an IBM pizza box x305 with the FreeSBIE disk
in the same fashion, and up comes its bge i/f, the boot -v logs 

pcib0 , pcib1 , pcib2

along with their associated physical busses.

Any help  greatly welcomed
