I have a new system put together (see below).  In booting it up for the first

Here are the messages, in part...




sc0:  at flags 0x100 on isa0

sc0: VGA <16 virtual consoles, flags=0x300>

vga0:  at port 0x3c0-0x3df iomem 0xa0000-0xbffff on isa0

Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec

hptrr: no controller detected.

The GEOM class LABEL is already loaded.

*** HANG ***

Where should I look to troubleshoot?

My hardware is...

&nbsp;&nbsp;Processor: AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ Quad-Core

&nbsp;&nbsp;Memory: Rendition by Crucial 1GB (x4) DDR2 SDRAM (PC2 6400)

&nbsp;&nbsp;Disk Drives: 2x Samsung Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM SATA

&nbsp;&nbsp;I have the disks in a RAID 1 configuration via the motherboard.

&nbsp;&nbsp;There is no other hardware in the case, and I'm booting from
